Cyclone Michaung : Rains expected until evening

KTCC – The city that never sleeps, known for its vibrant nightlife and bustling streets, has been facing the wrath of heavy rainfall for the past 12 hours. The entire city has been battered by rain, with no signs of it letting up anytime soon.

The Arrival of Cyclone Meaty West Bands

The reason behind this sudden deluge is the cyclone Meaty which has been wreaking havoc in the Western region. The west bands of this powerful cyclone have been relentlessly showering KTCC with heavy rainfall, causing rivers to overflow, traffic to come to a standstill, and flooding in low-lying areas.

Continuous Rainfall and Its Impact

As the rain continues to pour, it is crucial for residents of KTCC to take necessary precautions. Heavy rainfall can lead to multiple issues, including:

  1. Flooding: With the rivers already overflowing, low-lying areas are at high risk of flooding. Residents living in such areas should consider moving to higher ground or seek shelter in designated evacuation centers.
  2. Traffic Disruptions: The incessant rain has caused major disruptions in the city’s traffic flow. It is advisable to avoid unnecessary travel and stay updated with the latest traffic alerts.
  3. Waterlogging: KTCC’s drainage system is being put to the test as the rainwater struggles to find an outlet. This has resulted in waterlogging in several parts of the city. Residents should clear any blockages in their surroundings to prevent further accumulation of water.

Stay Prepared and Safe

In times like these, it is essential to stay prepared and take necessary precautions to ensure your safety and well-being. Here are some tips to help you navigate through this heavy rainfall:
