The overflowing of several rivers and canals in the Puttalam district including Deduruoya, Battuluoya, and Kudupitiiyaoya rivers and the Hamilton canal has created a flood threat in seven divisions.  This has caused obstructions to traffic on Puttlam – Colombo road, Chilaw – Anamaduwa road and Madampe – Nattandiya road. Train service on the Puttlam line has been crippled due to the overflow of Deduruoya and Battuluoya rivers. Pix by Jude Samantha

    How god bless the peoples? Can you see any blessings by the God? This is man made disaster and its Global heating. Evrybody like modern world and this is the result. Humans are destroying what God has created.

    What is happening in sri lanka? flood,red rain, earth quake, falling objects etc. If there is no good governence, we can expect these type of thigs. Rulers must repent from their wicked ways and fear God and do their duties genuinly. Then only these curse wil move away from us.

    Gamarala, you're a fool! go back to into the hole you climbed out of or at least shut your god damned ...!

    The nature has no power to show it's wrath on it's own. the one and only creator who created this whole universe and control every thing in it. this is the wrath of Almighty God. If we repent to him he will forgive & eradicate all our difficulties.

    # ishan: Why ask God to bless the people? If you believe in him, he is the one who is causing all the havoc with the rains. A little bit of research would not go amiss before you make inane comments, and make a fool of yourself.

    ishan Wednesday, 19 December 2012 07:22 AM

    AJshan Wednesday, 19 December 2012 08:18 AM

    The catastrophe condition can be revoked in this nation and individuals, only by true repentance to cleanse the curse by the blood of innocents.
