The Heavy Rainfall That Struck Our Village

It was on a sunday morning when i woke up from my cosy mosy bed and went outside the grey clouds were low in the sky. I told my parents that it was going to rain and it did rain after some few minutes,the rain rained and rained and rained.cattles died as a result of floods.The farms were filled with floods,the villagers prayed but the rain just continued raining.The rain,rained for four days then it stopped but many lives were lost in the tragedy,cattles also died and it brought loss to the farmers because their plants were destroyed.That time the Red-Cross heard about the tragedy and were touched to help the villagers and they came to their rescue and they helped the villagers and located them to another land and they started their life there again and forgot about the past i was pleased with their act and i thank them.
