flood1-300x225The Katsina State Commissioner for Environment,  Alhaji Aminu Ibrahim, on Tuesday advised the people of the state to expect heavy rain between now and May 21, 2013.

Ibrahim said in a statement on Tuesday in Katsina that the alert was a follow-up to the one recently issued by the Nigerian Metrological Agency (NIMET).

He particularly warned residents of Bakori, Funtua, Katsina and environs, to be cautious as heavy downpour may occur in the areas.

Ibrahim urged the residents to embark on self help efforts to clear all blocked drainage and waterways in their communities to avert flooding.

The commissioner also warned against excavation near dam embankment to avoid the collapse of the dams.

Ibrahim advised local government councils in the state to ensure that all blocked drainage and waterways were cleared to enhance free flow of rainwater. (NAN)
