    If not the government people should be conscious about areas prone to flooding as it can be disastrous

            I want to believe and trust that all governments whose countries could be affected by these rains are well informed of these and have taken it upon themselves to do what needs to be done to ensure no live are lost, no property is destroyed during this season

                  So alarming!! It's important for communities and authorities to be prepared and take necessary precautions to minimize the impact of the heavy rains. Also its an opportunity for creating dams for storing rain water for future use like agriculture and of course Hydropower.

                    @walter_lungayi being well prepared calls for the government and other agencies to come together, mobilize resources and ensure proper mitigations of the effects that could arise from the heavy rains
