Floods displace many in Vadamaraadchi

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 16 December 2009, 11:39 GMT]
Continuing rain and floods in Jaffna peninsula, particularly in Vadamaraadchi North and East, have caused people from the coastal areas to seek shelter in Churches and public buildings, sources in Jaffna said. The most affected are the people brought from Vavuniyaa camps and resettled in the abandoned tsunami shelters in Ma’natkaadu in Vadmaraadchi and those who have no relatives to take responsibility of them, the sources added.

Most of the residents of villages from Valveddiththu’rai to Inparuddi have left their homes and sought refuge in the churches in Oo’ra’ni and Chappoaddai areas.

More than 210 families have left their shelters in Ma’natkaadu seeking refuge in the nearby churches.

Government officials are supplying the displaced people with cooked meals.

Unrelenting rain and the floods caused by it have caused heavy damage to paddy cultivation in the peninsula while disrupting transport services.
