Anambra agency raises the alarm on flooding

01 September 2015, 10:03Okoro Chinedu

Lagos – The Anambra State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA) has renewed its alert to citizens to be on the guard of possible flooding.

The warning is a sequel to the prediction and insistence by the Nigeria Meteorological Institute that the intensity of rainfall will increase this month and October.

Officials noted that SEMA had already in collaboration with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) and some members of the Executive Council (EXCO) toured flood-prone local government areas of the state two times in the last three months.

He stated that the flood enlightenment team had taught the people measures they need to take in order to minimize the adverse affects of the imminent flood disaster and also save lives.

SEMA has thus identified the flood-prone local government areas as Anyamelum, Anambra East and West, Ogbaru, Onitsha North and South, as well as Idemili South and Awka North, in addition to Ekwusigo and Ihiala.

“You may recall that SEMA is one of the near-moribund agencies of the State Government revitalized and equipped by Gov Willie Obiano for maximum productivity,” Ifeanyi Aniagoh, Executive Assistant to Governor Willie Obiano on Social Media.
