The early morning flood on Tuesday in Command and Ipaja communities in Lagos impacted about 151 houses.

Lagos Territorial Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency NEMA Ibrahim Farinloye, said this in a statement.

Farinloye said preliminary assessment in some communities affected by the rainfall showed that residents were evacuated from 23 houses at Oke Ishagun.

He said 35 houses were affected at Isale Aboru, 29 houses at Ikola Community and 15 houses at Olubodun Majiyagbe-Ajayi.

Also affected were 12 houses at Makinde Street, 16 houses at Olokowo Street, 21 houses at Adeola Street, among others.

Farinloye said NEMA was working with appropriate state MDAs to ameliorate the effect of the flood on residents.

Farinloye said Tuesday’s excessive rainfall and downpour earlier on Sunday were strong signals of what to expect with the outset of 2024 rainfall.
