Delta Government says it has mapped out safe grounds to mitigate the effects of flood on its citizens living in the riverine communities of the state.
The Commissioner for Special Duties, Mr Ernest Ogwezzy, said this at a forum to sensitize the people of the state on the flood alert by the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency on Thursday in Asaba.
The forum was organised by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in collaboration with Delta State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA).
He said that the safe grounds would be used as internally displaced persons’ (IDP) camps should the communities be hit by flood.
The Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency on Sept. 8 warned of more flooding in some states in the north and some southern coastal cities.
