Comments: Three (3) days of incessant torrential rains from the 14-16 September has left 42 communities inundated with water in Lower Margibi and Montserrado Counties of Liberia. Liberia is amongst the world most wettest Country and has a record number of floods in the last ten years. Once again, the Du River joining the Atlantic Ocean in Lower Margibi overflowed its banks thereby leaving vulnerable people in their communities at risk. The main road to International Airport was rendered impassable due to the flood waters, heavily constraining vehicle traffic and those travelling by air as road traffic have to find alternative routes.
