Five riverine communities in Warri North Local Government Area of Delta State including Torukubuagbene, Awanba, Koropigbene, Itagbene, Asigborodo and adjourning clans, have all been overrun by torrential water.

The councillor representing Ogbinbiri Ward 18 in Asigborodo Community, Kenren Pere, while disclosing this to journalists in Warri on Monday, stated that the incident began over a week ago, noting that the situation worsened on Friday.

“Though rain has been falling before, but we have not had it so bad like this”, he stated.

According to him, residents can no longer go about their normal daily activities to feed, “so there is hunger in the affected communities”.

Daniel Okpor, Director, Administration and Finance, Delta Emergency Management Agency said that the agency was unaware of the development.

Okpor, however, requested for video clips of the incident to aid their findings and response.
