When you hear that the flood situations in some Nigerian States have been declared a 'National Disaster' the images here tell the sad stories. 

The Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, on Thursday visited some communities in Anambra and Delta State that were by the bank of the River Niger and what he saw was devastating. 

1. The Vice President was flown in a chopper to assess the level of damage that the flood that is now uncontrollable had done to these communities. 

He saw houses and large expanse of land that the flood had taken over, forcing residents to flee.
