Tamil refugees from Vanni, detained at schools in Vavuniyaa, were affected by heavy downpour of rain Monday, but refused temporary relocation, officials in Vavuniyaa said. The refugees turned down the offer in fear of getting separated from each other, the sources added.

Vavuniyaa District Secretariat officials offered temporary relocation for 1,263 civilians belonging to 449 families detained in Gamini Mahaa Vidyalaya to a school building at Paddaa'nichchiyoor.
