The Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET) has predicted that 13 states would experience heavy rain in the coming days.

In a statement, NiMET said the affected states could experience flash floods on roads, bridges and low-lying areas which can disrupt vehicular traffic.

The public is therefore advised to take necessary safety precautions; do not walk through fast-flowing runoff waters.

The predicted states include Niger, Plateau, Benue, Kaduna, Taraba, Delta and Imo

Others are Cross River, Akwa Ibom Rivers, Bayelsa, Ekiti and Osun.

Moderate to heavy rainfall is also anticipated over parts of Zamfara, Kano, Borno, Gombe, Adamawa, Kogi, Kwara, Nasarawa, Ogun, Oyo, Ondo, Lagos, Edo, Enugu, Ebonyi and Anambra States.

The development is as a result what is known as the Madden-Julian Oscillation which is expected to be strong within the week over the West African region.
