The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) weather forecast has shown that some parts of Borno, Kebbi, Sokoto, Bayelsa and Delta states could be flooded in the coming days.

NiMet says its soil moisture analysis and the weather patterns showed that some parts of these states are flood high risk areas.

The Director General of NiMet, Prof. Mansur Matazu, disclosed this in Abuja on Tuesday at a press briefing.

Recall flooding is already ravaging communities in Jigawa and Sokoto states following increased rainfall in the last few days. Hundreds of houses and swats of farmlands have been ravaged by the flood.

NiMet prediction shows that these patterns will continue in the coming days or weeks.

Matazu said in the recent analysis of the soil moisture carried out in the last 48 hours showed the states were most vulnerable to flood.

He said, “The high risks areas are the central parts of Borno State, the northern parts of Kebbi and Sokoto states, including central parts of Kaduna State with a portion of some parts of Bayelsa State and Delta State.
