The rain stopped around 3.345 p.m. and many children made a quick getaway. Many parents of juniors had come to school armed with rain coats or umbrellas for their wards – the rain had begun by 2.30 p.m. and remained steady.
The roll of thunder was loud and kept recurring too.
The city has been experiencing the rain for a few days now.
