August – September Rains/Floods Devastate Benue State In Nigeria
Over 110,000 Nigerians fled their homes because of major flooding in the central state of Benue. The flooding follows two weeks of record rains.
At least three people are dead, but the process of tallying casualties and damage has not yet begun.
Nigeria’s economy has not yet fully recovered from a nationwide inundation across 30 of its 36 states in 2011. The dead numbered in the hundreds and two million people were left homeless.
