NiMET Predicts Flash Floods For Kano In September

Nimet says Kano may experience flash floods in September

The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) has warned that Kano may experience flash floods in September.

The warning is contained in a statement signed by it's public relations officer, Muntari Ibrahim on Monday.

"The saturated state of the soil moisture across the country in the month of July and heavy rainfall recorded in August may put most places to experience varying degrees of flooding activities ranging from high, medium, low and flash flood for the month of September.”

The agency also noted that areas with major river channels may experience a probable high risk of flood events due to the accumulation of water already on the river channels which may not be able to contain any additional water.

It further advised the State Emergency Management Agencies to intensify adaptative, mitigative and response mechanisms while states that are expected to experience degrees of various flood episodes are advised to begin their awareness campaigns through field extension workers for possible flood activities within the month of September especially those at high-risk areas.
