The areas mostly affected by the rain and floods are Rikkos, Ungwan Rogo, Gangare, and Ali Kazaure.
Abdulsalam Mohammed, an official of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), which is giving some relief materials to those affected, said his agency was liaising with traditional rulers about the distribution alongside continuing with the search for the many people that are still missing.

According to some of the affected refugees that SaharaReporters talked to, many families are still looking for their loved ones. Home Page
