Nigerian Meteorological Agency places 11 states on danger list

The Nigerian Meteorological Agency has placed 11 states in the country on danger list regarding severe flood which will occur between August and October this year.

The states according to the Agency’s report on Rainfall Situation are Akwa Ibom, Bauchi, Benue, Borno, Cross River, Delta, Kaduna, Kwara, Nasarawa, Yobe and Zamfara.

The report said that the saturation of soil moisture in the affected states was due to cumulative high intensity rainfall in June and July.

The agency in its 2016 Seasonal Rainfall Prediction, had said that while many parts of Nigeria would experience lower than-normal total rainfall due to the effect of El Nino, flooding could still be experienced in such areas, particularly those that were naturally prone to it.
