1 million affected by Sri Lanka floods

1 million affected by Sri Lanka floods -  Aid workers scrambled to help more than a million people in Sri Lanka suffering from massive flooding described by the government as the worst natural disaster since the 2004 tsunami.
At least 27 people have died and 12 more are listed as missing, Lankapuvath, Sri Lanka's national news agency, reported Friday

The Sri Lankan government and United Nations agencies were beefing up efforts to address increasingly dire humanitarian needs.
Many of the people in flood-affected areas are still recovering from the 25-year bloody conflict between the government and the rebel Tamil Tigers.
