By L.B.Senaratne

There has been no solution for the floods that occur during the rainy season at Akurana on the Kandy – Matale Road, as seen on Wednesday evening.

The heavy rains that occurred on Wednesday evening in Kandy created havoc at Akurna, where the entire town was inundated with water and blocking away Akurana by 7 in the evening

The initial section of the Akurana – Dunuwila road was also inundated. Although the floodwaters were about 3 to 4 feet high and about 200 meters long,yet by 8pm the water had drained away up.

No major damage has reported but. during the rainy season, Pinga-oya river flows into the main road from time to time and floods occur yet no solution has been forthcoming though it has occurred for years.  No Council local or the State has taken anyh action on this issue.
