- Tidal waves have destroyed towns and dwellings in the Volta and Central regions
- Residents are attributing the waves to the menace of illegal sand mining
Severe tidal waves in tidal waves in the Central region are feared to have left over 200 households displaced with a fisherman also feared dead.
The disaster follows a similar event in the Volta region where over 1000 persons got displaced due to what troubled residents say might be the menace of sand mining activities.
So far, the National disaster management organization (NADMO) is yet to come to the aid of these affected communities as media reports suggest it stays as the most tortuous sea disaster ever recorded in the year 2017.
Residents are currently relocating the disaster scene as all affected towns in both the Volta and Central regions have literally turned ghost towns.
Tidal waves remain a nightmare in several coastal areas of the country especially as the landscape of their dwelling, which previously was on high grounds, have been eaten by various factors including that of natural erosion causes and also severely the menace of legal sand mining.
Meanwhile government is yet to respond to the needs of affected communities as YEN is gathering that relief items could be administered by NADMO to all victims today, June 12.
