Floods ravage Kaduna, Lagos, Ogun









About 60 houses were submerged by flood in Kaduna communities as a result of heavy rainfall which occurred as a result of long hours of heavy downpour that started on Friday morning till the evening of that day.

The flood affected houses, schools and shops within the state metropolis including Hayin Dan Mani, Hayin Bello new extension, Abubakar Kigo Road new extension, Barnawa, Narayi, Romi, Kinkino and Kurmin Mashi, among others.

The flood occurred weeks after the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NIHSA) warned that floods would likely occur in eight major rivers and their tributaries in the course of 2016.
It was reported that the Director-General of the agency, Dr Moses Beckley, gave the warning at the presentation of the 2016 Annual Flood Outlook (AFO) in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, in July 2016.
