Lagosians, take heart – you are not alone!

As you count your losses over last night’s flood that destroyed countless property and ejected many from their homes, people in parts of England are also gnashing their teeth over the havoc caused by flooding.

A 66 years old man identified as Michael Ellis was today swept away to his death in Lodlow, Shropshire, as a stream swelled. Shropshire is a county in the West Midlands region of England.

“Earlier, 22.2m fell in Winterbourne, West Midlands, as a weather front moved across the country,” said a report in Daily Mail. “In Birstall, Leicestershire, hailstones the size of golf balls fell this afternoon - smashing a car window in the process. The hailstones - which measured up to 6cm (2.3ins) in diameter - fell during an hour long storm which started at around 1pm,” the report added.
