Chaos in Sri Lanka
Floods and landslides decimated Sri Lanka as more than 65 died and lakhs got displaced due to the recent fury of nature on the island nation. India has been quick to help its neighbours with relief materials. India on Friday sent two of its naval ships with relief materials to the cyclone-hit island country of Sri Lanka.

Relief on a war footing
The two ships — INS Sunayna, an NOPV (Naval Offshore patrol vessel) and INS Sutlej, a survey vessel — were sent with relief material from Southern Naval Command Kochi to the capital city of Colombo.

Ministry of external affairs spokesperson Vikas Swarup tweeted that a C17 aircraft carrying personnel of the National Disaster Response Force (NDMA), National Disaster Management Authority and relief material has also reached the Sri Lankan capital.

6The cyclonic storm ‘ROANU’ has severely battered Sri Lanka. It has wreaked havoc as more than 65 people have been killed and lives of over 4,50,000 people have been affected.
