MNDF works to drain Malé flood water - MNDF

Officers of the Maldives National Defense Force (MNDF) have concluded work to drain flood water from several regions in capital city Malé following Saturday’s downpour.

Taking to twitter following the torrential rains that poured over capital city Malé and outlying atolls on Saturday, MNDF revealed that their officers began draining flood water from the IGMH and West Park regions, some of the most flood-prone regions in the capital city on Saturday evening.

Other regions in which officers are active include near the Children’s Park on Ameenee Magu, another road prone to heavy flooding with the slightest of rain, and several other flooded roads.

There was consistent rainfall over the capital city on Saturday, causing many roads to flood.

Maldives Meteorological Service predicts torrential rains and thundershowers to prevail over the country in the next few days.

Since the severe weather began prevailing a few days back, gusty winds and choppy sea conditions have cause sea swells in some islands. Further, Fonadhoo island in Laamu atoll experienced a tornado on Saturday morning.
