In Sri Lanka, hundreds of small boats have navigated deep flood waters to deliver aid and rescue stranded people. The week-long rains have caused chaos across the country, unleashing deadly landslides and driving tens of thousands of people away from their homes.

The meteorological department has warned of more downpours, especially in the southwest.
