Heavy floods overrun Benin and environs

Residents of Benin and its environs  have been overwhelmed by the heavy downpour and attendant flooding which overtook the city
Just like previous years, the rainfall led to heavy flooding in Etete and its surrounding streets trapping residents within their homes.
At Mabel Mabel Erewa, Imadiyi, Enogie and other adjoining Streets, some residents counted their losses as they bailed out water from their homes and cleanup the mud residue.
A resident complained bitterly on the need to complete outstanding road constructions as well as put one in place where there is none with a clearcut effort to channel off flood water to save residential areas from collapse.
