Introduction: Lagos received another bout of the climate change phenomenon with unusually heavy rains in the month of July 2017. The downpour between 5-8 July resulted in the flooding of many parts of Lagos with Ikoyi, Lekki, Victoria Island and the Ajah axis witnessing the most severe inundation of homes and business properties.

From Ahmadu Bello Way near the former Bar Beach to Lekki Phase 1 and extending to Ajah and adjourning communities, residents were trapped as the raging waters took over entire streets, cut off others, inundated cars and other valuable property, and surged into their homes.
