The Kotagala Pradeshiya Sabha stated that the residents of four estate line houses have been evacuated last night (12) with the risk of rock falls due to heavy rains in the central hills area.

Two females were injured and admitted to the Dikoya Base Hospital with two large rocks falling on a line housing in Hatton Koatagala, Mayfield Estate managed by the Kotagala Pradeshiya Sabha yesterday.

The Kotagala Pradeshiya Sabha stated that 18 members of 4 houses have been temporarily housed at the library and the cultural hall of the estate as there is a risk of some rocks situated above from falling onto the line houses.

The National Building Research Organization (NBRO), the Estate Administration Authority and the Kotagala Pradeshiya Sabha have been informed to look into the risk of rocks falling into the estate line houses.

The rock falls and mudslides have severely damaged the front portions of these line houses used by the estate residents.
