- Heavy rains on Friday led to severe flooding in many parts of Accra
- Roads including the Madina-Shiashe road and the East Legon tunnel had reportedly "disappeared" due to the rushing water
Most parts of the country were on Friday nearly submerged as heavy rains flooded the streets and some buildings.
Several traffic updates on social media saw different parts of the capital city flooded as gutters were overrun with muddy rain water, and roads disappeared with cars stuck in the rushing torrents.
Several people opted to stay in the safety of their homes or took refuge in other building as they waited for the rains to stop.
However one mother in strained efforts to get her children to school, braved the heavy downpour to do just that.
Citifmonline.com sighted a photo of woman making her tricky way across flooded slippery paths in order to get her kids to their school compound.
The mother of three, while covering her baby with an umbrella in hand, carefully guided her other two young children across the barely visible dry areas for them to step and on and move ahead in their journey.
Accra’s flooding issues have remained an age-long battle, with very few effective solutions in play.
Many citizens have called on government to quickly provide the necessary measures to end the flooding crisis.
