PhotoNews: Flooding  Ravages  Anambra State

"Disaster struck several communities in two Local Government Areas of Anambra West and Ogbaru in Anambra State following ravaging flood after a torrential rainfall in the state. Governor Peter Obi was compelled to make emergency visit to the scenes of the flood for on-the-spot assessment, and thereafter he called on the federal government to declare the affected communities disaster areas.  The Governor, who visited the areas in company of officials of the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), and State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), as well as some members of the State Executive Council, said that the level of destruction was more than what the state alone could handle. The communities affected by the flood tragedy in Ogbaru include Osomala, Ochuche Umuodu, Akili Ozuzo, Akili Ogidi and Atani, while those affected in Anambra West are Oroma Etiti, Ezi Anam, Umuenwelum, Umueze Anam, Umuoba Anam, Nmiata, Innoma, Ukwalla, Owelle, Igbedor, Odekpe, Odemagu, Nzam and Igbokenyi." - Daily Star
