The National Emergency Management Agency, NEMA, has sent a strong warning to 102 local government areas in 28 States.

Director-General of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) AVM Muhammadu A. Muhammad disclosed this at a flood advocacy to Jigawa State Governor, Muhammad Badaru Abubakar in Dutse.

He said the Local Governments are at the higher risk of being devastated by flood due to their closeness to waterways in the country.

According to him” the annual flood outlook informed that 102 local government areas, in 28 States fall within the highly probable risk area.

“While 275 Local Government Areas in the 36 States of the Federation including the Federal Capital Territory fall within the moderately probable flood risk areas, the remaining 397 Local Government areas fall within the low probable flood risk areas”

Muhammad noted that the predicted floods have started to occur in many parts of the country.

He, therefore, advised the Local Government to activate all plans and measures against the prediction.

He, however, stated that the annual occurrence of flood have continued to threaten food production in the country.

Muhammad said although climate change is responsible for the increased flooding, the Governments and people must involve strategies to minimize losses through adherence to warning alerts, early prediction and proper response.

Government Muhammad Badaru Abubakar said the flood has so far killed about thirty people, destroyed over fifty-one thousand houses and farmlands submerged.
