    we have faced so many natural disasters within chandrika and mahinda regimes.so people of srilanka next time think twice before voting sinners.

    Podi Hamadurowo Thursday, 11 November 2010 05:46 AM

    Nature wreaking havoc? God's way of showing his unhappiness?

    Karthik Thursday, 11 November 2010 10:06 AM

    Who told Colombo is going to be los vegas???

    Bala S Friday, 12 November 2010 12:13 PM

    Guys do not panic. This is God's answer to clean the city of corruption. All excess money will be gambled at the new Casinos coming up. God bless Sri Lanka.

    KD Thursday, 11 November 2010 07:11 PM

    kareoke judge Thursday, 11 November 2010 11:18 AM

    kareoke judge Thursday, 11 November 2010 11:21 AM

    They like threeweeler drivers, drug dealers,thugs.and gangstars.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Friday, 12 November 2010 06:52 AM

    If Colombo gets flooded like this after the much talked about Las Vegas is opened, wonder what the rich tourists who come for gambling and prostitution think of the place.

    Bala S Thursday, 11 November 2010 11:42 AM

    Amazing City of Colombo. A small miracle . City by the sea under water. Congratulations Colombo Muncipal Council you have done it again. No proper drainage system . Unbelievable!

    Mr10% Friday, 12 November 2010 08:42 AM

    Offer at least 10% commission on the casino project

    Panigawatte Friday, 12 November 2010 08:48 AM

    A better drainage should be revised to avoid all these natural fllod. Instead of promoting casino , Sri Lanka needs better roads with drainage systems to avoid all these stagnant water.

    hasbullah Friday, 12 November 2010 01:15 AM

    The god's will against the passed bill of casino

    Kundu mali Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:05 AM

    For a change God is Affecting the the rich. Normally it was poor people living low areas.

    hasbullah Friday, 12 November 2010 01:24 AM

    The god's will against the passed bill of casino expressed by this way to direct the lawmakers toward right pathway

    Dillon Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:07 AM

    I guess that three wheel driver didn't do his job. Shall we appoint a cart driver next time? Hats off to democracy !!

    gamini Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:07 AM

    What is shame. Degrading Colombo city is again under water. Well not to worry, in two weeks everything will be forgotten !!

    Gayana Amerasekara Thursday, 11 November 2010 03:04 PM

    After last floods they started to clear canals etc. ..and some ministers stated that flood problem is solved.
    Urban Hydrology is a separate subject and this problem of disposal of rainfall runoff has to be tackled scientifically. The capacity of storm water disposal system is not sufficient to current urban developments. More Buildings, concrete, roads mean more runoff. No exposed soil to absorb rain water. Unfortunately no one cares/understands.
    As Gamini said.. "Well not to worry, in two weeks everything will be forgotten!!”

    malkanthi Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:31 AM

    Fowzie must be a happy minister, whichever ministry, he is benefiting.

    WAC Thursday, 11 November 2010 03:49 AM

    yes public transport is the best op[tion. But how far its reliable?

    Sinnai Thursday, 11 November 2010 04:01 PM

    We will never learn from our past mistakes. Our rulers are unfit to hold their offices.

    Just Another Citizen Thursday, 11 November 2010 03:54 AM

    Just declare a holiday.... Most people will be clearing out water from their houses anyway. Thanks to our amazing drainage systems.

    Smart Aleck Thursday, 11 November 2010 09:02 AM

    A well maintained Drainage System in the City of Colombo. Congratulations to the Loudmouth Minister in Charge.
