Two cars and the third one was stuck in the trees. I work here and I would be the victim if I would delay abit thank you

  5. No proper drainage systems, wanton cutting down of trees, building everywhere as long as you can, etc are the main causes of these floods. We either change and the change will come or we continue being adamant and perish. The ball is in our hands.
