In the recent few months, torrential rains have been a frequent visitor of Sri Lanka. Many other countries were hit by unprecedented floods during the past few months. Even at present, the Filipinos are suffering from floods. The drastic weather pattern changes are indications of nature responding to human activities.

Now it seems that mother nature is taking her revenge.
