The Nigerian Meteorological Agency has advised Lagos, Ogun and Cross River states to prepare for floods between June and early month of July.
According to Director-General/Chief Executive Officer, NIMET, Dr. Anthony Anuforom, the groundwater in these states were already high because heavier rains had already been recorded in and around the states.
Anuforum spoke at the agency’s headquarters in Abuja while updating newsmen on the 2013 rainfall pattern.
He told Punchonline that, “There are strong indications that the groundwater over Cross River, Lagos and Ogun states are already very wet (saturated) and these areas are expected to be affected by floods following the arrival of more rains particularly as the first peak in the rainy season in June to early July 2013 is about to set in.
