The Cross River State Government has condoled with the family of Abang in Kakwagom who recently lost their 13 year old daughter, Janet Ashu to the windstorm disaster which ravaged Boki and its environs.
The Director-General Cross River State Emergency Management Agency, SEMA Mr. Vincent Aquah urged the family of the deceased to be consoled and remain steadfast in prayers to God.
He said that it was unfortunate that such a calamity should befall the little girl adding that it should be seen from the point of view of God’s will.
Mr Aquah who was assessing the windstorm disaster in Boki and Etung Local Government Areas said that the natural disaster was an indication of the effect of the climate change.
He used the opportunity to advice that wherever such disasters occur, people should urgently seek shelter and lie low until the storm subsides.
Mr. Aquah said that in the event of flooding, residents of flooded areas should urgently vacate and undermine property capable of slowing down their escape while motorists should avoid flooded roads and bridges.
The SEMA boss further said that in the event of heavy down pour, motorists should switch on their head lambs while driving and preferably properly park their vehicles to avoid accidents.
