FEMA Warns Abuja Residents To Be Prepared For Serious Flood

The Federal Capital Territory Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has warned residents of Abuja to prepare for flood.







Abbas Idriss, director-general of FEMA, gave the warning in a statement on Saturday. He said the areas prone to flood are Kubwa, Gwagwa-Karimo, Kuje, Airport road and Gwagwalada.

Idriss said flooding is expected because the torrential rainfall had increased the water level at the Usuma dam and spilled into the Usuma river channel.

“People along the Usuma Dam channel will experience an increase in the volume of water along the River Channels,” he said.

“Areas to be affected are Kubwa, Gwagwa-Karimo, Kuje, Airport Road, Gwagwalada, among others. The situation is scary; FEMA is advising residents of the listed settlements to be wary of possible flooding.”

Idriss asked residents to be on the alert as some flooding may occur in the absence of rain.

He advised residents of Kubwa and Kuje to be aware of streams, drainage channels, and other areas prone to flash flood. Idriss urged residents of the affected areas to move to higher grounds at the sight of flood.
