The rainstorm which was accompanied by a heavy downpour that lasted over two hours damaged over 50 residential buildings, two transformers and over 100 electricity poles.

Some of the affected communities included Egbejila, Ajegunle, Odoore, Bayi, Ilu-Oba, Sokoto, and Oko-Ode, all in the llorin West Local Government Area.

Roofing sheets of many buildings were blown off by the wind. Household furniture and electronics were also destroyed.
