    If this kind of disaster was eminent in Hambantota, MR would have already fixed dams, culverts or even a water salination plant to help the people of that area. People take note.

    These are early Signs of Dajjal the "Anti-Christ" arrival. He is the False Messiah among people who will claim that he the GOD and every on earth should worship him. He will perform certain miracles to prove him self and relieve people hardship in exchange to follow his new world order OR other terms to worship him.
