A resident of Achusa community, Emmanuel Agbo said that the rain started at about 12:45am and lasted till around 5am Wednesday.
“At about 2am of the heavy downpour, I noticed water surging through the main door of my house and before long, every room in the house was flooded. At a point, I looked outside to see how I could move my family to safety, all I saw was water everywhere.”
At the time of this report, many affected residents were seen either trying to battle their way out of the flooded areas or stranded with their belongings around town.
