Enugu State Government has sent flood alert signals to residents of areas designated as probable flood risk areas in the state.

This was in response to Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency (NHISA) in its 2020 Annual Flood Outlook forecasted flood disaster in parts of the country

The agency noted that no fewer than 102 local government areas in 28 states of the country, including Enugu State would fall within the probable risk areas.

The Executive Secretary, Enugu State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), Mrs Nkechi Eneh, said that no fewer than 10 local government areas of the state would probably be affected.

Eneh categorised the outlook as highly probable flood risk areas and probable flood risk areas.

She named the local government areas that fall under the highly probable flood risk areas to include Enugu East, Udi, Nsukka, Enugu North, Enugu South and Oji River.

Those under the probable flood risk areas are Igbo-Etiti, Ezeagu, Uzo Uwani and Nkanu East Local Government Areas of the state.

“Considering the above, we have requested local government administrators in the affected areas to as a matter of urgency carry out flood sensitisation campaigns targeting community members and opinion leaders.

“This should also include traditional leaders, heads of women groups, town union executives, market union leaders and others who will cascade the information to the villages,” she said.
