Flooding In Lagos!!

I have been hearing about the flooding in Lagos since yesterday  then i saw pictures these pictures above taken by people i was like o my gosh so its this bad! I feel really sorry for people whose houses have been ruined by the flood it is a very sad situation in Lagos right now. All we can do is pray.
The state commissioner for the Environment, Mr. Tunji Bello, said in a statement:
 "Dear Lagosians, please bear with us. Today's downpour has been heavier than normal as the state government had earlier warned. It has been raining since 5am in many areas and it hasn't stopped.

“The water level has risen incredibly so that the channels that are meant to discharge water from the roads and drainages are completely locked because of the high tide and because both the Atlantic Ocean and Lagoon that receive water from our channels have risen more than usual.
“Please be calm and do not panic. Once the rains subside, the water on the roads would gradually disappear. Our men are on the field working to manage this situation.
“Please endeavour to remain indoors as much as possible until the rain stops. Thank you for your understanding. Public Holiday was declared in Lagos today because of the Flooding.
God Help Nigeria!
