Add Your Voice Make Noise About the Flood
Don’t slay where it’s not safe but make noise, generate news about our diverse ills.

This is the middle of August and September is next door what precautionary measures have you taken so far.
Because the python couldn’t successfully wind its body around Oderinde the hunter, he became ‘ode rinde‘ and never knew the python is strong, deadly. He turned to pet but I’m sure you don’t want to hear the rest …. Because you walked in the flood in the past you don’t know how powerful it is but don’t fall before you realize that flood is raw energy and some experiences are the best killers. Don’t underrate flood and walk in same. Dangerous reptiles might be lurking, broken bottles hiding ….

Finally if where you stay while it rains is safe, stay there till the rain subsides or stops completely. Now if you notice that the streets are flooded don’t tempt the flood with your blood.
Meanwhile stop the habits of dumping refuse in ditches, drainage in fact clear blocked ditches in your surroundings.
