My son and I are joyous that trees uprooted by rainstorm didn’t kill us –82-year-old Imo widow

Rain is a water droplet that falls from the sky. It was a bad rainfall for people living in Imo state and other part of Nigeria yesterday, there was an heavy rainfall in Imo state yesterday, the rainfall caused alot of havoc in the state.

An old woman has shown her gratitude to God after she and her son survived in the heavy rainfall. The 82 years old woman and her son who is a student pastor are reportedly sleeping in the last room in her husband's building that has not been demolished by the rainstorm, she said she was grateful to God.

She said :" What happened on Thursday afternoon was frightening. I was at home when it started. My grandchildren were also playing round the compound, they were trapped by trees uprooted by the rainstorm but they were not badly wounded. I thank God that no life was lost. The government should come to the aid of an old widow like me."

What do you think about this? Should the government really assist the woman and her son to rebuild the house?
