While heavy rains and strong winds wreaked havoc in many parts of the country,   the city of Colombo saw the usual fallout of inclement weather with heavy traffic blocks and flooded roads.

While many chose to stay indoors to stay dry, a few brave  souls were seen at Galle Face Green this morning taking in the unusual sights in the surrounding area.
