Flood Sacks 5,000 Families, Farms in Borno, Others

In a rare twist of fate, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has announced that flood has devastated three North-eastern states of Borno, Bauchi and Taraba, washing away over 4,000 farms and destroying over 5,000 houses. This is coming at a time several South-western states are experiencing a cessation of the rains, often called "August Break".
