Rainstorm on Wednesday destroyed houses at Oro, Iludun Oro and Esie in Irepodun Local Government of Kwara State.
The sad incident occurred barely 24 hours after fire gutted 30 shops in Oro.
The rainstorm, it was gathered, also pulled down electric poles, thus throwing the communities into darkness.
The rain, which began around 3pm, did not last up to an hour, an indigene of Oro, Niyi Adekanye, said.
He added: “The incident has thrown Oro and its environs into darkness. We appeal to the state government to assist us.”
The areas affected in Oro include St. Andrews Church, Abegun compound, Balogun square, etc. It was learnt that the roof of a house belonging to Mr. Shina Afolabi, done a day earlier, was blown off by the rainstorm.
