Photos: Calabar floods after February rainfall

After a month break without rainfall in the city of Calabar, Cross River State capital, the rainy season showcased it tentacles again in the month of February, but with destructive nature.

The rain which to many is a blessing, cooling the heat in the neighbourhood, to some became a blessing in disguise as populated streets of Calabar became flooded following a back-to-back heavy downpour.

Most affected parts are Ekpo Abasi by Yellow Duke Street, leaving businesses and houses in destruction. The unexpected rain flooded people’s properties, soaking up goods stuck in shops at the area as well as filling people’s houses, turning their sitting rooms into a swimming pool.

Many may ask why the State Government couldn’t looked into these flood-prone areas as the rainy season approaches, but to their disappointment, the residents of such areas are going to face similar hoodoo come this 2018.
