Mr. Kpodzo noted that the frequent recurrence of the disaster has left no safe grounds for the setting up of shelters to accommodate the affected residents who are struggling for space in the few unaffected homes.

The disaster, which is the second in two months, according to Mr. Kpodzo was a result of the sea defense wall constructed at the Ada side of the estuary.

He is therefore appealing for an immediate government intervention to safeguard the communities from extinction.
