Plateau alerts residents of more floods

02 August 2012, 16:32

Plateau - The Plateau Government has alerted residents of Jos-Bukuru metropolis of more floods, barely two weeks after floods claimed scores of lives in the state capital.

``While we mourn the many lives lost to the flood that swept some parts of Jos penultimate Sunday, the Federal Ministry of Environment has alerted us more floods.

``Those danger days are not far away,’’ the state Commissioner for Environment, Mrs Sarah Yusuf, told newsmen in Jos on Thursday.

Yusuf listed areas likely to be affected to include Sheleng, Bukuru and their environs.

``It is good that we have this alert in advance. We don’t want a situation where people will be taken unawares and many lives will be lost.’’

The commissioner advised people living in those areas to promptly leave the areas, and advised residents to ensure that all drains and waterways were not blocked.

Following the alert, the Plateau government on Thursday convened a meeting of stakeholders to map out strategies to contain the situation.

The worst-hit areas in the recent flood disaster included Angwan Rogo, Angwan Osi and Rikkos.
