Colombo, Oct 4 – At least five people were killed by lightning and many were missing due to floods triggered by torrential rains in different parts of Sri Lanka, officials said.

Pradeep Kodippily, national co-ordinator of the disaster management centre said five people were killed by lightning in Moneragala, Gampaha and Ratnapura districts during the weekend.

The island has been experiencing heavy rains since Friday, Xinhua reported.

Kodippily said Badulla district’s main highway between Badulla and Haputale was closed Sunday following landslides. Several roads in Galle district were also blocked due to floods, officials said.

    Dear Secretory General UPFA, please send a circular to all members stay inside when raining as we can't afford to loose any one of them.

    You have a morbid bizzare sense of humour. Most may not get it.

    hibimsha Monday, 04 October 2010 05:33 AM

    Sahan Monday, 04 October 2010 09:29 AM

    Ok I agree, but doesn't all these comments indicate that all sri Lankans has one wish. Lightnings to hit some particular group of people.

    Hey People, do not use this news to argue on your political desires. This is a natural disaster and your fellow countrymen are in trouble. It is sorry to see that not a single word supporting people who lost homes and loved ones. If this is your mentality, what is the difference between you and all those (as you said, corrupted) politicians?

    unl Monday, 04 October 2010 09:48 AM

    dont worry, culprit is the jail now. well protected from the lightning

    sf Monday, 04 October 2010 06:18 AM

    Nature will strike at those who have done wrong - So be AWARE

    malkanthi Monday, 04 October 2010 06:25 AM

    Sahan, dont carry hatred towards hambanthota fellows, else there will be no difference b'ween you and them!
