Jan 22, 2011 4:46:50 AM - thesundayleader.lk

The Disaster Management Center (DMC) says that 3,456 persons who were displaced by the recent floods are still living in 22 welfare camps.

The DMC has added that measures have been taken by the government to provide them with the required relief.

The government meanwhile has stated that persons who were sheltered in welfare camps were returning home after the weather conditions have improved in the past few days.

Disaster Management Minister Mahinda Amaraweera on Thursday (20) told the media that 31,000 houses have been either fully or partially damaged due to the heavy rains and floods experienced two weeks earlier.
