Burma (Myanmar) – More than 5800 people have been evacuated in Mon State following heavy rainfall and flooding yesterday. Seventeen temporary shelters have been built for people affected by the floods in the Mon State capital Mawlamyine, south east of Rangoon. The area had 13.7 inches of rainfall and floods have swept through the town due to the heavy rain causing the rivers to rise. Flooding in southern Myanmar has caused a landslide at a famed Buddhist pagoda, submerged homes and displaced hundreds of people as monsoon rains batter the country. Several parts of Myanmar’s southern Mon state are facing flash floods due to heavy rains since the weekend with no relief in sight. The landslide damaged the hilltop Kyeik Than Lan pagoda, whose golden stupa towers over the state capital Mawlamyine.
