Angop learned from the spokesman of National Services of Civil Protection and Fire Brigade (SNPCB), Faustino Sebastião, said that the most affected zonas are Belas and Cazenga municipalities, as well as urban districts of Rangel, Maianga, Samba, Kilamba-Kiaxi and Ingombota.

Luanda-The flood in the streets and houses and the fall of some trees is the temporary report of Thursday rain, which rained with some intensity in some areas of Luanda. According to the official were not recorded any human and materials damage.

In Morro Bento, Catintom and Golf-II wards (districts of Kilamba Kiaxi and Maianga) many streets are not in good conditions for road traffic neither for people due to the existence of great water ditches. The situation is the same in Cazenga Municipality, particularly in 7th and 5th Avenues and some streets of Rangel, Marçal and terra Nova.

In Luanda's urban district of Ingombota, that comprises more than 50 percent of Luanda down town, the rain can be considered as normal, where was recorded the fall of two trees in Maculusso and Ilha do Cabo.
