Rains in Ghana often generate discussions among a cross-section of people, especially when lives and properties are affected.
More often than not, the debates hinge on the location of houses and other structures put up by people in a community.
However, regardless of the conversation that builds up, some things almost always reoccur whenever the rains come down:
1. Properties are destroyed
Rainfall in Ghana almost always results in destruction of properties, especially in areas where illegal structures have been erected.
Some buildings are erected along drainage facilities and are damaged whenever the rains descend.
2. Lives are lost
It is not uncommon to hear of people losing their lives whenever rains fall. This usually occurs when some people risk their lives in a bid to save their properties.
3. Government releases a statement and/or provides relief items
More often than not, the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) comes in to intervene. This is sometimes met with mockery, especially by those directly affected by floods.
4. Measures to check drainage systems
There are often measures that are implemented to check drainage systems to ensure that disasters don't occur again.
Whether these measures are successful or not is often determined by the next rainfall.
5. Traffic in town because drivers try to avoid flooded areas
Rainfall, especially in urban areas with drainage challenges often results in traffic, as drivers often try to find alternative routes to their destinations.
Th flooded areas are therefore avoided, leading to a congestion of vehicles on the few available routes.
