Aftermath of torrential rain at Adabraka in pictures

When the residents of Adabraka and its environs went to bed on Monday night, little did they know they will be greeted with a flood on Tuesday dawn.

They woke up abruptly from sleep to fight a flood which was threatening their very existence.

Some of them had to stay awake to scoop water from the torrential rain to save themselves and their properties.

At about 7 am when myjoyonline.com visited Odawna and Adabraka, two of the hard-hit areas the residents were counting their loses and salvaging what they could.

Some of the residents at Adabraka Sahara where there is a newly constructed drainage blamed the contractor for a shoddy job.

They said the poor quality of the job done there is the cause of the flooding in their locality.
