236 days of rain coming to Lagos

The Lagos State Commissioner for the Environment, Mr Tunji Bello, said at press conference yesterday that Lagosians should prepare for 236 days of heavy rain in 2012. What he said:  
The natural phenomena that controlled 2011 rainfall are still in force and as such it has been predicted that rainfall will commence from Thursday, March 22, with a margin of error of four days. To a large extent we will agree that this prediction is true as the rains have started in Lagos. It has also been predicted that the end of the season for 2012 is November 12 with a margin of error of two days; with between November 10 and 14 as probable days. The total length of rainy season for the year is approximately put at 236 days with a margin of error of two days. Like last year, Lagos will experience heavy rainfall with serious intensity.
236 days of rain? This won't be nice!!!

May God Save Us All! Linda-Linda, may be we should start building/buying canoes, boats, and turn our car parks to Canoe and Boat parks. These pictures reminds me of last year Sunday heavy rain. A Colleague, lost his pregnant sister in the rain. She was about to put to bed and was referred to another hospital in that rain, she died along the way due to complications and flooded roads, making it impossible for the car to move. This was not reported in any of the news

I am, the no Sender.

Let it rain all it can, that's nature for you.

But I put out a prayer for all those who may be victims should the magnitude of the July Sunday 3 2011 rain repeat. Abeg, the destruction and gloom that followed that event should not re-visit Lagosians. Oh God please preserve lives and properties that people do not die In Jesus name. Amen

Thats Ridiculous mehn.... See u folks in December if you haven't washed away by then..:)

But on a serious note a lot of property damage will happen, a lot of roads will be washed away, maybe some landslides ... I hope they have an emergency relief fund in place and ready to help after it subsides. (Oh sh&t my bad, Its Las Gidi that I am talk about here..LOL) Every Man for himself o. I have canoes for rent if anyone needs it, just email Linda to get a hold of me..

Atobatele said...

What are they doing to prevent the damaged this would caused? What happened to all the abandoned canals in the state? Is dere any attempt to educate the people on emergency and recovery? I expected Lagos state govt to educate us on what to do if we are to discard the prediction of the Meteorological Agency and help move us forward.

Those of you living in Lagos slums need worry about the rainy season.
