Worst Flood In 50 Years Renders 1,000 Families Homeless...Terrible!

Over 1,000 families across seven local government areas in Southern Plateau have been rendered homeless as the worst flood witnessed in 50 years raged through for a second day yesterday washing away homesteads, bridges, farmlands and livestock.

The flood was unleashed by three days of torrential rains which fell throughout the weekend and Monday night swelling rivers and streams to overflow on Shendam and Langtang North and South which were worst hit. Mikang, Quan Pan and Wase local governments were also affected.

The Shendam bridge gave way yesterday morning complicating the situation by cutting off access to the affected areas and the link between Plateau State and neighbouring Nasarawa and Taraba States.

The Shendam and Langtang floods also destroyed houses, farms and other valuables.
