The floods brought disaster not only upon human beings but on animals as well.

A well grown wild Elephant had lost its life due to the heavy floods experienced recently. The carcass of the Elephant was found on a paddy field in Nidanwela Arunapura, in the Mahaweli zone close to the Maduru Oya forest reserve. A group of farmers found the body while the flood waters were receding. The Elephant had been swept off by the floods and no injuries were found on its body.
