Food crops destroyed includes: Maize, Onion seedlings, Green pepper seedlings, Groundnut, Millet etc. It is revealing to note that a total of One hundred and thirty-one (131) farmers were affected by the floods.

No single casualty or death was recorded. Dangerous reptiles from the river into the communities along the White Volta were not left out as a consequent feature of the flood waters. Residents are adhering strictly to the precautionary measures. The Municipal disaster preparedness plan on flood has being activated.

      lot of exclusive content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it
      appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet
      without my authorization. Do you know any methods to help stop content from being

      Hello there! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your
      site mobile friendly? My blog looks weird when viewing from
      my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
      If you have any recommendations, please share.
