Flood To Hit Delta, Anambra, Bayelsa And Others. by trinity227(m): 3:15pm On Sep 01, 2018
HEAVY FLOODING TO HIT DELTA, ANAMBRA, BAYELSA, OTHERS AS COASTAL COMMUNITY DWELLERS WARNED TO MOVE UPLAND
It is hereby announced for the information of the general public, particularly Deltans that the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA) has warned that fresh flooding is imminent in Delta, Anambra, Bayelsa, Kebbi, Niger and Kogi States which magnitude is comparable to that of August 29, 2012.
Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency and NEMA’s warnings of imminent flooding are predicted on the alert raised by the Niger Republic River Basin Authority (NBA) that the dam at that end is already full and this gives cause for serious concern.
Also, the rivers downstream and dams in Nigeria, especially in Benue, Lokoja and Kebbi States are also full and the Kanji and Jebba dams have started spilling water which will find its ways to the Atlantic Ocean through the River Niger and its tributaries.
Communities in Delta State will most certainly be affected by flood especially communities along the banks of River Niger.
Local Government Areas most prone to flooding are Oshimili South, Oshimili North, Ndokwa East and West, Isoko North and South, Ughelli South, Burutu, Bomadi, Patani, Aniocha South, Sapele, Warri North and South and Udu Local Government Areas.
In view of the predictions and the warnings by the Nigerian Metrological Agency (NIMET) and National Emergency Management Agency, the Delta State Ministry of Environment, has by this announcement advised people living in river banks and low land areas to move to higher lands or places of safety.
Accordingly, authorities of Local Government Councils in the State, traditional rulers, community and opinion leaders are advised to step up preparations against the flood prediction to reduce the level of destruction of properties and avoid loss of lives.

We need proper drainages to prevent these floods from wrecking havoc.
