Rain fall

Heavy rain which started by 9:45 pm, in Calabar on Saturday, March 21, has destroyed property and power installations in some parts of the state.

The rain which started with heavy wind pulled off some roofs of buildings, trees and high tension wires in Atimbo and Iyanghasang areas of Calabar Municipality Area Council.

In Atimbo, a major fuel station (name withheld) had two of its fuel metres blown off their positions.

The News Agency of Nigeria says that as at the time of filing this report, people were seen clearing the wreckages caused by the storm while some were seen instructing their carpenters on how to effect repairs on their roofs that were blown away.


This was not the first rainfall in Calabar in 2020, however, it was the first that came with massive winds destroying property in the city.
