He pointed that it has been many decades when last they experienced such type of rain fall in the area, the rain fall for at least 3 hours with a heavy nonstop downpour.

It’s something that happening every year instead for government to take drastic action to stop it’s future occurrences, every year huge of money was said to have been budgeted without any measurable achievement. The lives of people are wasted away and properties of millions are been vanishing every year. If all the water ways are not cleared and enough culvert and drainages are provided in places this problem will continue.
