In Fort portal—
Properties worth millions of shillings were on Monday destroyed in one hour heavy rain that came with heavy wind and hail storm in Kisenyi south division fort portal municipality.
The heavy rain entered people’s shops destroying goods like maize flour, beans, sugar, and groundnuts flour among others.
The rain also destroyed some spare parts outlets where some machines were destroyed with water and others were washed away.
Akiiki a trader in Kisenyi attributed the disaster to poor town planning where drainages were not well constructed.
She asked the fort portal municipal council to come and reconnect water channels so as to avoid such calamites.
The rains also left several garden crops destroyed in places of Harubaho, Karambi Sub County and others places.
