Many states across the country will witness more floods following the rise in the water levels of Nigeria’s two major rivers – River Niger and River Benue, the Nigeria Hydrological Services Agency declared on Monday.

NIHSA is the Federal Government’s agency that has the mandate of monitoring all the major rivers in Nigeria including the trans-boundary rivers Niger and Benue, among other functions.

The agency stated that one of the latest information it received on September 6, 2019, from the headquarters of the Niger Basin Authority in Niamey, Niger Republic, confirmed steady rise into the Red Alert Zone up to 6.26 metres of the flood level of River Niger monitored in Niamey.

The Director-General, NIHSA, Clement Nze, explained that flood alerts were graded as Yellow Alert, 5.5m to 5.8m; Orange Alert, 5.8m to 6.2m; and Red Alert, 6.2m and above.
