Prepare for flood - NiMet tells North East and South West statesNigerians especially those in Taraba state and some parts of the South West areas, have been advised by the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) to prepare for impending flood as a result of expected rainfall.  Director-General of NiMet, Prof Mansur Matazu who urged Nigerians not to be caught unawares, gave the advice following the recent rainfalls experienced across the country.  Matazu noted that NiMet recorded 95 percent precision and accuracy in the last 15 years even when the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said 60 percent precision is good.  Lamenting that some states and local governments are not adhering to early warnings issued by the federal government by aligning to activities at the national level aimed at mitigating the effect of floods, he also stressed the need for MDAs to take all the warnings from NiMet to mitigate the impact of flooding. Daily Trust reported that he expressed optimism that with the agency’s good working relationship with the National Orientation Agency and Ministry of Information, a lot of sensitization will be done to ensure that Nigerians take cognisance of climate forecast in their daily activities.  The post Prepare for flood – NiMet tells North East and South West states appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
