Which Areas or Estates On The Island Are Least Prone To Flooding? by markpenk: 8:33am On Nov 24, 2017
Ladies and Gentlemen,

I'm looking to move to the Island in short order. My single biggest worry is the high risk of flooding on the Island. We know the rains will be here very soon, and I really don't want to experience the flooding that many experienced this year on the Island.

Which leads me to my question: Where are the least flood prone areas on the Island? More specifically, anywhere between Lekki and LBS? -looks like the farther away from LBS the estates and areas are, the less planned/maintained (or maybe someone can educate me?). I'm also open to other suggestions if you have them.

All other things being equal -good security, drainage, roads, gated communities, and planned estates- I'd appreciate your recommendations. Please understand that I'm not particularly worried about rent and living costs per se. Just don't want to deal with a flooded apartment and/or street (okay, maybe the occasional flooded street. Definitely not a flooded home).

The farther away I can be from flood prone areas, the better really.

I'm hoping that this thread would not only benefit me, but also prove to be beneficial to other people who are thinking about doing the same.

Mods... Lalasticlala mynd44 lawyer... please epp me (make I no go become cautionary tale o) grin. Na beg i dey beg o. Please help a brother. Thanks.

It depends on your budget for rent or land purchase but Graceland estate is nice, it is upland and has good drainage system, was very okay during the flood.

Northern foreshore estate is well planned and never floods. Avoid chevy view and areas around Agungi.

Nowhere is safe on the island. That’s why it’s called an island. It can be submerged anytime!

The flooding thing could be resolved easily if only our First Class civil engineers are not busy using tweeter to sell themselves. You got First Class and you are stupid enough not to know how to plan your life or make yourself useful. Naija and fake distinctions.
80% of Harvard graduates move on to become employers not employee. Naija First Class student: goes to twitter and tweets give me work because he or she feel entitled to a job. They don't know that it is not your grade that entitle you it is your will, passion and hardwork

Try diamond estate off the new ShopRite Novare mall road , the roads are interlocked and at least I have never seen it flooded b4 even during the last heavy rain. It has security, central water system but no central power supply. Road from estate to lekki epe express way is paved too due to ShopRite I guess. Only duplexes in estate. There are also many estates on that ShopRite road.
Cheers
