FEMA Warns About Strong Winds In 12 States, Assures Preparedness

FEMA observed that the potent winds have the potential to result in the displacement of individuals and sporadic instances of damage to vulnerable structures.

According to a statement from Nkechi Isa, FEMA’s Head of Public Affairs, the Federal Emergency Management Authority has issued a warning that states neighboring the Federal Capital Territory will encounter powerful winds in the coming three days. This caution is based on impact-based weather predictions made by the Nigerian Meteorological Agency.

“States contiguous to the Federal Capital Territory, like Nasarawa, Niger and Kaduna are to experience very strong winds within the next three days. Kebbi, Sokoto, Zamfara, Katsina, Bauchi, Yobe, Gombe, Borno and Adamawa states will also experience strong winds. The forecast warns that moderate risk hazards may occur due to the strong winds,” the statement read.

“Mindful of the fact that climatic changes in some of these states, particularly Nasarawa, may impact the Federal Capital Territory, FEMA is closely monitoring the situation,” the agency added.

Dr. Abbas Idriss, the Director General of FEMA, announced that the Agency’s Search and Rescue teams are on high alert. In addition, he cautioned residents to exercise caution during intense rainfall and advised against driving through areas with standing water. Dr. Idriss appealed to residents to clear any obstructions in drains and to refrain from constructing buildings near water channels.
