-The Ghana Meteorological Agency has predicted more rains in the coming weeks
- The outbreak of Cholera and other diseases is also expected to be triggered due to the rains
The Ghana Meteorological Agency has revealed that more rains are to be expected in the coming weeks.
Forecaster at the agency, Fredrick Larbi has stated that Ghanaians should brace themselves for more heavy rains and thunderstorms. He has thus charged the general public to stick by the predictions as a way of ensuring their safety from the rains.
“We are expected to have a few more rains of this nature going forward…before the end of this month. The rainfall will come but whether or not it will cause destruction depends on other factors that are beyond our ability to predict. Ghanaians are to adhere to the weather warnings and other forecast that we issue routinely so that collectively we can all make our society safer,” he stated.
The forecast by the Ghana Meteorological Agency follows torrential rains in Accra on Monday which got several parts of the city inundated.
This year's rains has also triggered a Cholera outbreak killing about 100 people with over 11,000 persons affected. Meanwhile the Ghana Health Service (GHS) has issued precautionary measures for the general public to adopt as part of measures to prevent the spread of the cholera outbreak in the region. The measures among other things encouraged Ghanaians to wash their hands with soap and under running water before preparing food, and after visiting the toilet.
