Sierra Leone hit by severe flooding and landslides.. .

The worst in the countries entire history

When I got these pictures last night.. the scale of the damage still didn't hit home
'Eh?!.. Where is this?!'.. I asked..
I could barely believe it.. roads I had driven along only weeks ago completely submerged in water
Oh no!.. Wow
.. the scale of the damage would become even clearer in the morning

Homes washed away, the loss of life reportedly numbering 4, although that figure fluctuates.. it's not clear
Today the President authorised use of the national stadium for the hundreds now homeless

It hasn't been an easy time for Sierra Leonians at home of late.. that's for sure

Not at all

The rebuilding must begin.. anew.. again...
