NIMET assures Nigerians of surveillance to forestall flood disasters

The Nigerian Meteorological Agency -NIMET, has assured Nigerians that there is no cause for alarm as it steps up surveillance to forestall flood disasters.

The Director-General of NIMET, Anthony Anuforom, said that an alert by the National Security Adviser prompted the speedy establishment of a team of experts from NIMET, the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency and the National Emergency Management Agency to scale up operations.

The NIMET Chief noted that although there are warnings of possible flood this year, especially in some northwestern states, the country is more prepared than before to tackle any flood disaster to prevent loss of lives and property.
