"There is actually no incident that is out of place. Where I live in Mende, Maryland, from time to time, when it rains very heavily, we have this surge because we have a canal of about 150 metres from my residence and other residencies around and so on. So, when it rains very heavily, if the government does not dredge the canal, water will start returning from the canal instead of flowing through, which devastates us."

Going further, he added that he has lost exotic cars in the flood.

As I speak with you, I have lost at least five cars in this residence of mine but because it is my baby project, it’s very dear to me and more important than any other property I own or will ever own. I have been here since 2008 and whenever this surge comes, it flows from the canal and floods our homes and all that. It floods the streets and in some cases, the home.

Meanwhile, there is a video trending online. In the video, two young ladies are seen cooking inside flood water. From what is gleaned from the short clip, it appears the ladies were cooking inside a compound that has been overtaken by a flood.

From the video shared on Instagram by GoldmyneTv, huge brownish waters covered everywhere. One of the ladies could be seen pounding what appears to be fufu or pounded yam inside a big mortar mounted right inside the flood. The "kokom kokom" sound of the long pestle descending on the mortar could be heard as it punctuated the wet air.
