646 persons from 150 Tamil families, displaced from Naanaaddaan and Thampuma'nik-ku'lam in Madu DS division were kept in another school.

Transport from Kugnchuk-kul'am village in Madu DS division to other areas is cut off for the last two days due to ten feet of flood overflowing from Aruvi Aaru.

More than 1,400 persons living in the village are also suffering without food and other basic facilities.
