Around 100 people still missing following landslides in Sri Lanka last week are believed dead, authorities said Saturday after failing to find signs of life under tonnes of mud.
The Disaster Management Centre (DMC) said 67 bodies had been recovered from the worst hit central district of Kegalle where 99 people were still listed as missing following the rain-triggered May 17 disaster.
People who were affected by floods are now heading back to their initial residences and are in a transition period to restore their lives back to normal. In this backdrop the Sri Lanka Navy's relief teams were busy with cleaning over 70 wells which were polluted by stagnant flood water and mending 7 canals damaged due to the devastation.
From 14-20 May, Sri Lanka received heavy rainfall due to atmospheric disturbances and the formation of Tropical Cyclone Roanu. On 15-16 May, some parts of the country received the highest rainfall for the season.

- Following Cyclone Roanu, ECHO field assessments to Chittagong in the South East and Bhola and Barguna in the South indicate a need for urgent humanitarian response. Communities and local Government authorities assess that food, shelter, water and sanitation and non-food items are the immediate priority. Reports also indicate that areas of Cox's Bazar are badly affected by flooding with food, shelter, water and sanitation being identified as urgent needs.
- Breaches in embankments along the coast continue to cause flooding during high tide.
Tropical Storm Roanu that struck Sri Lanka on 15 May 2016 caused severe flooding and numerous landslides, particularly in the west of the country.
According to the Government of Sri Lanka Disaster Management Centre, 301,602 people have been affected by the floods and landslides. 104 people are known to have died and 99 people are still missing.
An estimated 21,484 people still displaced as a result of the disaster and are living in camps and temporary accommodation including schools.
Although Cyclone Roanu killed 30 people in Bangladesh last week, steps taken to reduce the country's risk from disasters saved many more lives.
On the evening of 22 May, Cyclone Roanu hit the coast of Bangladesh. On last count, the cyclone had caused the deaths of around 30 people. Although the loss of 30 lives should be considered too many, the death toll in light of previous climatic disasters makes this a good news story, where successful disaster risk reduction measures have avoided loss and damage.
