Nigeria — Flood Rapid Needs Assessment Dashboard — Cross River State (30 December 2022)

The rainy season in Nigeria typically occurs annually with the greatest concentration between the months of June and September. Many states in Nigeria have been affected by unprecedented heavy rainfalls and floods have devastated various communities. Infrastructure, crops, and shelters have been damaged which led to decimated livelihoods and the displacement of numerous households. Over the past months, the increasing climate variability and the release of excess water from the Lagdo dam in northern Cameroon, have worsened the flood situation which resulted in a renewed situation of widespread displacement across Nigeria.
Between 28 November to 5 December 2022, DTM, in collaboration with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the Cross River State Emergency Management Agency (CREMA) and the Nigerian Red Cross Society (NCRS) identified 59,248 individuals in 12,967 households that were affected by the floods in the 9 LGAs of Cross River state that were assessed.
