Torrential Rains Cause Havoc

The rains started yesterday. True, it's the rainy season but it's been relatively dry for the last couple of weeks. Suddenly, out of the blue, the downpour begins. Most of the roads were partially flooded and roads were full of traffic. 10 people died due to flooding and land slides.

It took us 4.5 hours to get home, which is roughly about 40kms.
Seems that the Colombo area was effected more severely. The picture above shows a section of the Galle road which has fallen in near Wellawatta, in front of the William's Grinding Mill.

Edit: It was actually in front of Sumanadisi Bakers
