Commuters stranded, cars submerged after heavy rainfall in Lagos [VIDEOS]

Residents and motorists in several parts of Lagos were on Wednesday left stranded due to the hours of intense rain, with major roads overrun by floods, resulting in gridlocks in most parts of the state.

In the videos that surfaced on social media captured some major roads in the state flooded, leaving workers who are on their way to the office stranded as they were unable to access vehicles.

The NewsGuru.com(TNG) report that the entire Iyana-Owo, Olopo meji down to third mainland bridge was overrun by waters making it impossible for drivers to travel through the flooded area to reach their respective destinations.

The flooded roads, at the filing of this report have caused a long traffic that extends to Alapere region of the state.

Also, commuters and motorists are left stranded around various axis of the state due to the gridlock caused by the flood.

Flooding is common in Lagos, a coastal city home to over 20 million people.

Despite government efforts to construct drainages and advise against dumping refuse in them, flooding is almost certain during heavy rainfall.
