Shock for families

Atasa Moceituba

RESIDENTS of Veisari were disturbed after their homes were flooded on Thursday.

Samina Begum, 45, said she had never seen anything like the flooding that swamped their houses.

"I have been living here for 15 years and have never seen anything like it before," she said.

"I don't know what to do and where to go now."

The mother of three said everything got worse around 11 that morning.

"Everything was OK when we woke up but things started to get worse after the heavy downpour around 11 this morning," said Ms Begum.

Fellow resident Mereoni Nave said the experience was something she would never forget.

"Especially when we had to evacuate our house and look for some other place to live in," Ms Nave said.

The 26-year-old said her family would struggle to find a place to stay.
