Flood

Flood in Nigeria

English

An estimated 206,000 people have been affected by floods in 15 Local Government Areas (LGA) in Adamawa State, since 30 August, and 42,800 people evacuated or displaced. The floods were triggered by spillage due to damage at the Dadin Kowa dam in Gombe State, which in turn caused an overflow at Kiri Dam located downstream in Adamawa State. Heavy rainfall worsened the flooding.
