    Colombo people should consider buying boats instead of cars now. They will come in handy.
    No systamatic construction after Brits left. This is what you get

    this is GOD"s planet, and for people who caused destruction, this is a small taste of destruction.

    Ariyapala Saturday, 04 December 2010 09:16 PM

    We should get rid of the donkeys in the parliment first.

    dhanushka Sunday, 05 December 2010 01:13 AM

    dhanushka Sunday, 05 December 2010 01:15 AM

    sen Sunday, 05 December 2010 05:59 AM

    its a auspicious time to have a parlimentary secession, then those fatty MP's can show their sagas

    Dheen Saturday, 04 December 2010 11:51 AM

    What is the state of the Parliament - looks like it is going to submerge. Town planning is zero.

    kanish Saturday, 04 December 2010 12:04 PM

    rain rain go a way

    nostradamus Saturday, 04 December 2010 12:18 PM

    I am sure Dr.JJ or the UNP is responsible for this sabotage...............

    Javed Ahsan Saturday, 04 December 2010 12:22 PM

    I think we better buy small boats...

    goodboy Saturday, 04 December 2010 12:23 PM

    omg............we will have to change the parliament carpets again...........lolllz

    Dinesh Sunday, 05 December 2010 08:20 AM

    Can't any of you people understand the fact that we have had too much rain even if there were proper city planners and flood control they wouldn't have been able to do much about it.

    Wimal_Modawansa Saturday, 04 December 2010 12:37 PM

    Strong winds and showers experienced in U.K. has now shifted to Sri Lanka and is likely to affect the Northern and Eastern part of the country

    Ossan Salam - Doha Saturday, 04 December 2010 12:44 PM

    OMG....The only solution for this calamity to make vast canel across Colombo city

    gamaya Monday, 06 December 2010 04:19 AM

    I think most of the flood cause by the blocking drains. If please keep throwing their rubbish in roads, this will keep happening.

    gamaya Monday, 06 December 2010 04:21 AM

    which god you refersing to? we have so many of them.

    gamaya Monday, 06 December 2010 04:22 AM

    probably we have less rain on that time.

    citizen1 Saturday, 04 December 2010 12:51 PM

    On the contrary it will emerge ( unless it gets submerged first) as the Venice of asia.

    Oyage sudu kella Saturday, 04 December 2010 01:10 PM

    Rain rain go away .. Come again another day...

    citizen1 Saturday, 04 December 2010 01:13 PM

    We could increase revenue by having Canal Tours around the city.

    Mallie Saturday, 04 December 2010 01:17 PM

    Why don't we start Hydro-power generation in Colombo??

    Nazreena Saturday, 04 December 2010 01:43 PM

    SF, JJ, RW and all opposed to MR are blamed for this calamity.
    Better get the rain gods to join the government. Then MR can decide when it should rain and when it should shine.

    Shivanka David Sunday, 05 December 2010 11:08 AM

    everything has and is becoming worse after all these years. it's very rare to find such news of floods if you go 5yrs back in time.

    Bunty Saturday, 04 December 2010 02:48 PM

    For another stupid, colombo roads flooded means,bright future...my foot!

    micky Saturday, 04 December 2010 02:54 PM

    very true.. hope government will reduce the tax for boats also

    Bunty Saturday, 04 December 2010 02:56 PM

    Does any one has a good town planning to propose?even developed countries too facing these types of situations.Not to forget nauture is more powerful than human beings!

    azath Saturday, 04 December 2010 03:25 PM

    This has to be investigated and fault has to be immediately rectified, Well one reason could be recent digging of the roads which would have damaged the internal drainage system !!

    Kithul Ramba Saturday, 04 December 2010 04:40 PM

    Not a again. What is the CMC doing to clear the drains.

    SL Saturday, 04 December 2010 05:01 PM

    Why don't make make this an opportunity and call the Colombo citi the 'Venice of Asia'?

    hasbulla Saturday, 04 December 2010 05:49 PM

    please, turn toward one almighty god & make complaints to him to reduce worst .
