The Floods has Resumed Earlier Than Expected

The rains have resumed early after a long break to give way to the dry season. In Nigeria, nobody expect any rain drop in the month of January but these past few days, it serious rains.

Even if rains would come, it will not be as strong as the July rains which is the peak of rainfalls in Nigeria. Last night, the amount of rain that fell in Lagos has left so many streets flooded in the city of Lagos.

One of the Forte Oil filling stations was flooded that it looked as if it was part of the original design.Despite the flooded filling station customers still entered to buy fuel.

The effect of last night rainfall has left lots of damaged properties on its trail. This is just one day rainfall, what about two days? According to a source, houses with low foundations were submerged and lots of properties destroyed in one section Surulere.

One of the probable causes of flooding in Lagos is the blocked drainage systems with plastics, glass, corn husk,sand and all types of waste materials. The drains need to be evacuated to give room for free flow of water.

The Lagos state government bodies responsible for flood control should start evacuating the drainage now to prepare for this early rains or else parts of Lagos will be submerged.

As at the time of filing this report, some parts are still heavily flooded.
