JUST IN! Sebei’s River Atari Bursts Banks, Destroys Over 150 Houses

By Our Reporter




Reports just coming in from Kween district in Sebei sub region indicate that yesterday’s downpour, 29th August 2022 led to River Atari bursting its banks and causing flash floods.


The floods are said to have led to the destruction of over 150 houses leaving over 500 people displaced.


Images shared on social media show roads that are impassable paralyzing transport in the area.


This is not the first time R. Atari bursts banks whenever there is a downpour. In March, this year, R. Atari again burst its banks leaving over 800 people homeless.


That time persistent rains pounded the area from a Friday to Sunday, in the two sub-counties of Ngenge and Sundet. The floods also destroyed 1,000 acres of planted maize, sorghum, and beans and killed livestock.
