Big Water Comes to Jos, Streets Are Flooded

Big Water Comes to Jos, Streets Are Flooded

The rains in Jos, the Plateau State capital, caused flooding that prevented free flow of traffic on major roads on Wednesday afternoon.

The roads along Nasco group of companies on Yakubu Gowon road were blocked by the flood. Residents blamed the flood on the blocked drainage along the highway.

Nigeria’s meteorological agency, NIMET, had in March, predicted severe flooding in Plateau State and some other states of the federation during the raining season.

The agency also predicted flooding in four council areas of the state: Jos South, Barkinladi, Bokkos and Riyom Local Government Areas, in June.

The warning has left residents of the council areas panicking each time rain falls.

On Wednesday, after the flood water subsided, residents were seen gathering their belongings, as the clouds seemed hazy, in fear of another downpour
