The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMet) has warned against heavy rainfall expected over parts of Niger, Plateau, Taraba, southern Adamawa, southern Kaduna and Nasarawa State.
NiMet disclosed this during a weather forecast made available for the next 96 hours.
Moderate-to-heavy rainfall is expected over Kwara, FCT, Kogi and southern Kebbi State.
Low-to-moderate rainfall is expected over Sokoto, Zamfara, Katsina, Kano, Jigawa, Yobe, Borno, Gombe and Bauchi.
While light or no rains are expected over the rest of the country.
“As a result of the moderate-to-heavy rains expected over parts of central and northern cities – places that have received ample rains recently – there are increased chances of flash-flooding of roads, low-lying settlements and river channels.
“Strong winds should accompany the rains, especially over the northern and central states during the forecast period.
“The public is advised to avoid low-lying terrains, not to drive through running water, clear waterways of debris, avoid standing under trees and unsecured structures during the rain, switch off electrical appliances before the rains – and not during – to avoid electric shock and be prepared for this event to avoid damages from weather-related hazards and watch out for updates,” the agency cautioned.
