Niger warns of flooding in Benin, Nigeria
On September 10, 20177:44 am

The Niger Basin Authority issued a warning Saturday of possible flooding in Benin and Nigeria, two countries downstream on the river, which is currently flooding in Niger.


Flooding in Port Harcourt after Heavy Rainfall

“We appeal to all residents downstream (of the Niger River)… because the water keeps rising,” the NBA’s Soungalo Kone said late Saturday, speaking on Niger television.

The NBA has issued its second-highest alert level of orange, warning that further flooding is highly likely following months of heavy rain in Niger and Mali.

“It’s a question of hours to get to a red alert — the waters can rise very suddenly,” said Lawan Magadji, Niger’s minister of disaster management, speaking on local television.

Floods are threatening villages and some sections of the capital Niamey, the minister said.

The ministry has already announced plans to evacuate residents in affected areas and reinforce dykes.

The government has set up sites for people displaced by the flooding, the minister said.

Almost all Niamey’s some million and a half residents live along the river banks.

Some of the homes at risk are located in the former bed of the Gountou-Yena river, which is now once again filling with water.

Flooding has killed 44 people across Niger since June, according to the civil protection agency, after more than 50 deaths from flooding last year.

They reject restructuring.

This government will not take preemptive measures now.

Like clearing of the drainages,building of emergency dikes and other water conveyance,and retention structures.

Temporary evacuation of people living in the affected areas,and provision of relief materials.

Sensitization etc.

I know that the government is waiting for the flood to kill,displace people and damage property,then the VP or the President will visit the affected areas,and red carpets will be rolled.They will make empty rhetorics and ask Nigerians to 'PRAY FOR THE VICTIMS'

See common Niger are building emergency dikes and camps in preparation of the flooding. Buy our govt will sit and do nothing even after this warning.

Sometimes, I ask myself... What the benefit of having a govt in Nigeria.

That's because they are upstream. They are already feeling the effects of the flooding and the water will definitely flow downstream to us. It's similar to how Ogun State warns Lagos State whenever they want to open the Oyan Dam to reduce pressure.

Upstream or not what's our Meteorological agency for?

To forecast rainfall here, which they already did since January. The heavy rains we are experiencing were was forecast by Nimet in January. They forecasted that the rain season will start late, be very heavy and that there's likelihood of flooding in parts of the country (they listed places that will likely experience flooding).
