Massive flooding in Bayelsa ‘blesses’ villagers with food (Photo)

A downpour in Bayelsa state led to flooding which wreaked havoc in so many communities, but some communities have been “blessed” by the flood.

A photo making the rounds online shows villagers rejoicing after the flood washed large fishes into their community – the villagers reportedly plan to sell the fish.

Meanwhile, residents along the Epie Creek in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, who were adversely affected by the flood have bemoaned their loss and the discomfort caused them by floods that submerged their houses.

It was gathered that the water levels rose beyond tolerable limits and wreaked havoc on houses, the environment, and properties of some residents. Due to the development, some residents were said to have temporarily relocated from their homes to seek refuge in other places.
