The channelwrite up primarily criticized the situation in the country to tackle such form of naturalcalamity[ CITATION Ada101 \l 1033 ]. Therewere little reference to what could have actuallycaused the flooding situation. The channel has its orientation to the American soil, with profoundanalysis done in English language, its criticism efforts are unmatched and similar to otherWesternized issues.
