The Osun State Commissioner for Environment and Sanitation, Sola Oladepo has called on residents of the State, especially those residing in urban areas to be mindful of possible thunderstorms within their areas.

This is as the Nigerian Meteorological Agency (NiMET) has forecast that there would be three days of cloudiness and thunderstorms in most part of the country, starting from Friday October 22, to Sunday 24, 2021.

Oladepo, who called on Osun residents to pay heed to the NiMET forecast, advised that doing so would prevent sudden shock, electrocution and others that may have a negative effect as a result of the thunderstorms.

Recall that in July, heavy rainfall had caused major damage to businesses and household within Osogbo and other key towns in Osun State.

The rainfall resulted in severe flooding which continued for days, with attendant destruction to properties, especially to those along the Osun River.

As a result of the heavy rainfall, parts of the railway track in Osogbo was washed away around the Malam Tope Area of the State capital.

The railway track that was affected was part of the railway line connecting Lagos to Ilorin through Osogbo.

Also, in August, as a result of heavy rainfall, two children of same parents were struck dead by thunderstorm in Ikirun town, Ikirun Local Government Area of the State.

NiMET had predicted that there may be isolated thunderstorms for three days from Friday to Sunday in some parts of Osun, Ondo, Ekiti, Enugu, Lagos, Akwa Ibom, Bayelsa, Rivers, Edo and Delta States.
