Chiredzi Residents Abandon Flooded Homes After Heavy Rainfall Overnight

Chiredzi town has been affected by floods after heavy rains pounded the town on Wednesday night.

Residents were last night forced to abandon their homes as water cascaded into houses due to the town’s poor drainage.

A Tshovani resident who spoke to said:

After a long dry spell, Chiredzi received torrential rainfall from around 9 PM on Wednesday into early Thursday leading to flash floods.

My printer and photocopier, as well as books and certificates, were all drenched. In the end, my room was like a small dam. I had to sleep on a neighbour’s sofa, his house is on higher ground.

The heavy rains resulted in some areas being inundated up to window level and by Thursday afternoon, the floods had not yet receded.

However, there have been no reports of injuries or deaths.
