It is incorrect to say that Sir Lankan is free from natural disasters like Cyclone, Tsunamis, Floods and Earth slides etc. History has its records. In December 1 964 tidal wave caused by cyclone which ripped through Northern part of Sir Lankan wiped out Admission in Earmarks Island from the map. A passenger train which left Earmarks Road station near about the midnight of 22nd was washed off by the storm surges sometimes later, nearly all passengers traveling in the train meeting water graves.

During the rule of queen Kali, western coast underwent a surge from the sea. Kelvin River was named after her. She was an arrogant woman.
