The Nigerian Meteorological Agency has said that from August to October this year, 11 states will experience severe floods as their various soil moisture has reached saturation.
 
According to NIMET, the saturation of soil moisture in the affected states was due to cumulative high intensity rainfall in June and July.
 
NIMET advised governments, communities and individuals in these vulnerable parts of the country to take proactive actions such as clearing water channels and drains.

The States include Akwa Ibom, Bauchi, Benue, Borno, Cross River, Delta, Kaduna, Kwara, Nasarawa, Yobe and Zamfara.
