As outlined by Daily Post, Ortom has asked the State Emergency Management Agency (SEMA), to liaise together with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) on assisting all those out of their place and the displaced people to get shelter.

Flooded areas are Zone 4, Wurukum, Gebade, Nyinma, Ghana, Naka Road, Wadatta Gboko Road and Media village in Achusa, after a rainfall that fell from 12.30 AM and then continued till 5 AM, Punch reports.
