Batticaloa DistrictSri LankaColombo District ColomboKalutara District Kalutara PanaduraAmpara District Akkaraipattu Karativu Housing: One of the biggest challenges facing communities following the Tsunami was finding safe and secure places to live. Many people had to move from the immediate Nindavur coastal areas to ensure that they were safe from future tsunamis and flooding, as well as having to rebuild their houses which had been destroyed by the waves.
