Deadly storms trigger landslides in Sri Lanka

Floods, mudslides and lightning have killed eight people throughout Sri Lanka.

The government’s disaster management centre said heavy rains triggered floods and mudslides in several parts of the country over the weekend, killing seven people. One person died after being struck by lightning.

The centre said today that floods and mudslides also damaged 284 houses and affected about 20,000 people.

Heavy flooding in January and early May in several parts of the South Asian island nation killed 50 people and affected more than a million others.
