Amidst fears of possible flood in some parts of Plateau State, residents in flood-prone areas are already relocating to safer areas.
Executive Secretary, State’s Emergency Management Agency, said in Jos that with the massive awareness by relevant government agencies on the impending flood disaster, the residents had seen the need to move.
Barde, who commended those who have relocated, appealed to those yet to do so, to immediately move to avoid being victims.
He said apart from media campaigns, the agency was also working with traditional, religious and opinion leaders to educate the people.
The executive secretary also said the agency had assessed damages in communities recently affected by flood and working out ways to assist them.
