These pictures were taken between 10.00am and 11.30am on the 14th of May 2010 after Colombo experienced rains for about 2 hours. It speaks volumes of the continued failure of the CMC to deal with drainage and flooding issues for the last 20 – 30 years.
Furthermore, I was trying to get from my house to work and the following roads were blocked due to flooding,
- Duplication Road
- Reid Avenue
- Horton Place
- Both Viharamahadevi – Museum Roundabouts
- Thurstan Road
- Thunmulla Junction
It continues to rain and Colombo continues to flood!
