Samoa is in for a very wet Mother’s Day long weekend.

The town area, especially Fugalei and Taufusi, was flooded this morning after a night of heavy rain.

Up the hill at Palisi, residents have been affected by a landslide.

Aside from blocking the driveway of the Ah Liki residence, the heavy rain caused the mud to flow into a family home. 

The mud entered the residence of a family around 4am while they were sleeping. 

The woman who did not wish to be named expressed her disappointment with what happened as its ruined a lot of her furniture, clothes, shoes and other valuables.

The area where the landslide occurred belongs to a family who resides off island.
