In my Bellanaija article Adefolake Adekola: The Environmental Impact of Floods four years ago, I mentioned
“Rise in sea level has increased drastically in Nigeria as a result of climate change and global warming. For the past six years, parts of Nigeria experienced heavy downpour of rain, which leads to a water level of about 5 feet high. An obvious reason for the rise in sea level is the thermal expansion (warming of the oceans) and melting of the ice caps over land. In summary, we might keep experiencing floods, as it almost inevitable. But what we do to prevent it from destroying our environment and our lives is what counts.”
In the article I mentioned what to do before, during and after a flood, so click the link above and have a read.
