Muddy waters gush down onto towns and villages in the north and east of Sri Lanka -- after a deadly cyclone on Wednesday. At least eight people were killed and over a dozen injured by the cyclone, which brought with it heavy rains and landslides. Government officials said over 11,500 Sri Lankans had been affected. The cyclone is expected to ease within the next few days, according to the national Disaster Management Centre. But more damage could be inflicted as the cyclone travels northeast, on a course to hit Bangladesh and Myanmar later this week.
