ABSTRACT

 

The study is aimed at examining the effects of flooding on residential properties in Calabar South Local government Area of Cross River State.The data needed for the study were obtained through the use of 200 questionnaires in four intensively flooded areas of the case study.However, the researcher also carried out physical observation the areas prone to flood and general discussions and interviews with the resident of these areas. Also both primary and secondary sources were used for data collection. This shows that flood has serious effects in residential properties and the residents in general. It then recommended that: all drainage systems within the study area must be cleared to ensure free flow of storm waters; the local planning authorities in the study area should ensure adequate sanctions for violators of building regulations as this will go a long way to curb the menace of flood in the affected areas.
