8 districts still prone to landslides

Landslides may continue to occur in the districts of Ratnapura, Kegalle, Galle, Kalutara, Matara, Hambantota, Kandy and Nuwara Eliya, says the National Building Research Organization.

Its director R.M.S. Bandara advises people living in these districts to remain vigilant of landslides.

Meanwhile, Galle is faced with a drinking water problem, as the main pumping station at Gin Ganga has been damaged in the floods.

Authorities request that as much bottled water as possible be sent to Galle when sending relief.
