Entire Ampara paddy harvest lost

By A. M. Jazeel -Addalaichenai Corr.

Thousands of acres of paddy land in the Ampara district were flooded due to continuous rains and this has caused immense loss to farmers.

The paddy that was destroyed was about to be reaped. All the paddy fields in Ampara were flooded.

In the meantime, a large number of people in Addalaichenai, Akkaraipattu, Kalmunai and Ninthavur sought refugee in schools and government buildings due to the deluge.

Following the opening of the spill gates of the Senanayake Samudra the flooding in Ampara villages increased.

Government officials are taking steps to provide food for those in camps.
