An estimated 100 people are still listed as missing, according to the national Disaster Management Centre (DMC), a day after dozens of tin-roofed homes were buried under tonnes of mud, with only a handful of bodies recovered so far. Hundreds of troops suspended their work with rains threatening more mudslides at the plantation in central Sri Lanka. "We hope to start work tomorrow morning if the weather improves." Perera said they failed to find any survivors or bodies from the disaster site on Thursday. He did not hold out much hope of finding survivors as the site was covered in tonnes of mud.
