Heavy rain in Bayelsa state resulted in flooding that wreaked havoc in many communities, but some communities have been “blessed” by the flood.
A photo going round online, shows villagers rejoicing after the flood washed large fishes into their community. The villagers reportedly plan to sell the fish.
Also residents along the Epie Creek in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, who were adversely affected by the flood have bemoaned their loss and the discomfort caused them by floods that submerged their houses.
It was gathered that the water levels rose beyond tolerable limits and wreaked havoc on houses, the environment, and properties of some residents. Due to the development, some residents were said to have temporarily relocated from their homes to seek refuge in other places.
