President Faure Essozimna Gnassingbé, who sympathised with the bereaved families, decreed three days of mourning as solidarity of the entire Togolese people in memory of the dead.An official communiqué issued here Monday directed that the national flag remain at half-mast throughout the country on Monday.

Rain induced floods also destroyed several farms, mud houses and footbridges erected over rivers.
