Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMA) has urged Ghanaians to take the precautionary measures as the rains would continue for the next two weeks.
The GMA says the intensity of the rains would however not be as much as it was on Monday, October, 28, 2019.
A director at the GMA, Joseph Ayisi, speaking to Francis Abban on the Morning Starr, said people in flood-prone areas should be careful.
“People should pay attention to weather forecast and avoid flood prone areas. The rains we are to expect going forward shouldn’t get heavier than what we saw yesterday,”
A hydro engineer Wife Ametefe, sharing his thoughts on Monday's downpour, said gutters must be desilted to allow easy flow of water anytime it rains.
“With regards to work on the motorway, studies are about to begin. A tunnel from Spintex that crosses the motorway is what caused the floods yesterday. All choked tunnels must be desilted so that the floods we see in some places will be a thing of the past”.
It is not regular in Ghana for the rains to fall in October. Many have blamed the current rainfall pattern on climate change.
