Panic levels are down, but fears still remain after tidal wave

Panic that spread through Galle that tidal waves are re-emerging is easing slightly but police have turned away residents who attempted to return to the town.

Eyewitnesses say police in Galle town are trying to clear up putrefying corpses as soon as possible. Already the stench of rotting bodies is in the air.

Rotting bodies of human and animal corpses increase the risk of diseases. Galle residents say fuel and clean water shortages are also rising.
