Over 2,093 houses were fully destroyed and 11,056 houses partially destroyed in the rains that ravaged the country over the 18th and 19th May weekend.

The 1,122 houses proposed by Disaster Management Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa will be used to resettle those affected by floods in five of the fifteen affected districts.
