How to clear old Rails local database when the repo has been deleted?

I have a rails repo created locally for practice purposes. After I am done, I deleted the repo (all the folders), but I did not run rails db:drop before deleting the repo (it was recommended here that I should have dropped the db first). The rails projects are linked to postgres database locally. Is there a way to purge these orphaned database entries/data even if my deleted rails repo is gone?

    Use the Postgres dropdb command:

    $ dropdb appname_test -i
    $ dropdb appname_development -i

    You may need to provide the connection details.
