    This is mother nature and it could happen to any part of the world. Just because there are no comments that does not mean the community is divided.

    Many deaths shows that we lacks preparedness to face floods. Please allocates at least 10/% of the relief budget to education & preparedness of the vulnerable communities.

    Very sad to note.... Not even a single comment for this disaster. It shows what a divided community we srilankans are......shame, shame...... just we are big talkers.
