- Heavy rains on Wednesday, May 29 left parts of Accra inaccessible
- Floods in the capital every time it rains, have become a usual phenomenon and the two-hour rains left no surprises
Accra was submerged by rains after heavy downpour on Wednesday, May 29, 2019. The rains left parts of the capital inaccessible; homes, offices and shops were all flooded.
Major roads and alleys all flooded. Many drivers and commuters were also forced to make long detours or had to park and wait till the floods receded.
One of the shocks however, was when the banking hall of the Madina branch of GT Bank got flooded.
A video making rounds on Facebook shows how the whole banking hall was filled with water, destroying some property.
Meanwhile, the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) has confirmed that the rainskilled three people.
Notable among the flooded areas in the capital included the Kwame Nkrumah Circle , Kaneshie, and Dome.
Speaking to Starr News, the national spokesperson for NADMO, George Ayisi, said his outfit has combed through the various disaster prone areas to assess the extent of damage.
"Following the rains, our men went out for a mop up, they have been to 28 places and in two of those places they recorded some fatalities.
At the Accra cluster of schools, a man and a son were standing behind the school wall and unfortunately due to the quantum of water that had gone into the wall, the wall collapsed and unfortunately the man and the son are dead," he said.
He added that there was another one in Adenta and the police have also conveyed the body too but details are yet to emerge from the incident.
