The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has advised flood-prone communities in Anambra State to begin to relocate upland ahead of possible flooding.

Mr Thickman Taminu, the acting Coordinator of NEMA, Enugu Zone, gave the advice on Tuesday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Taminu said the Nigerian Meteorological Agency’s (NIMET) prediction of flooding in Anambra was still valid.

He said the prospect of flooding had not been fully averted in the state, adding that 15 LGAs were predicted to be highly vulnerable. (NAN)
