Flooding: Lagos State Govt advises some residents in the state to relocate

Flooding in Lagos State
The Lagos State Government has warned residents of areas prone to flooding to look for alternative accommodation on higher grounds from June to January next year. The warning, according to it, is necessary because of the anticipated unusually heavy rainfall that the state is likely to witness this year.

Some of the flood prone areas where the residents have been advised to move away from are Ikosi-Ketu, Mile 12, Agiliti,Thomas Laniyan Estate and Owode Onirin, Agboyi, Owode Elede, Maidan and Isheri North Scheme.

The government’s warning is based on the prediction by the Nigerian Meteorological Agency that put this year’s rainfall at 300-1,100mm in the North and 1,200-2,700mm in the southern parts of the country. - Punch
