The devastating 2004 Tsunami which is the biggest such disaster to affect the country, has left thousands destitute, and everyone in Sri Lanka grieved for the victims and the helpless. The landslide that took place today 29 October at Meeriyabedda area in Koslanda in Badulla District, which left hundreds missing and more than 15 confirmed dead by afternoon of today, is the biggest natural disaster to strike since the 2004’s deadly Tsunami. We are still very hopeful the number of dead would not rise above what is reported as of now.
