I've been watching CNN on how hurricane Ike devastated Cuba and Haiti and is presently heading towards the coast of Texas in full swing. The irony of the whole thing is that most hurricanes form in the African coastal regions of the atlantic especially West Africa. Why they don't attack Africa still beats me.
Four major cities in Nigeria that are directly connected to the atlantic coast are Warri, PH, Calabar and lagos. So, what if the hurricane decides to strike in any of these coasts, how effective can residents be evacuated without a record of too many loss of lives and properties? Do you think we are prepared for a disaster like this in Naija?
