For Dee Carraway, New Bern, NC USA. I think Induruwa was hit quite hard unfortunately. A website I found states that "Tsunami Tidal Wave Update: Severe damage to all hotels and infrastructure in the Southwest coast area". I am sorry I do not bring more positive news. I sincerely hope your friend is found soon and safe
Mrs Jenkins, Plymouth UK
Just back from Bentota in Sri Lanka-the bigger hotels around suffered no fatalities though many travellers lost possessions on ground floor level and although sadly local villages up the west coast were affected, many tourist hotels though damaged did not suffer as badly. Taj hotel was unaffected, bentota beach slightly....those on beach level and ground floor rooms more so. Height of building from shore made a big difference. we got the impression that small private beach lodges etc more affected and especially further south towrads galle and round the south and east coasts. that said much damage up the galle road on coastal strip to colombo for a distance of about 5-20 metres inland depending upon elevation and steepness of beach. areas with river inlets seemed to fare better. hope this helps.
