Videos being shared online show the flood situation in Accra is getting worse with the onset of the rains as cars, lotto kiosks, and rooms are submerged under water.

In many parts of the capital, the rains have been falling since the dawn of Tuesday, May 24, 2022, and have left in its wake destruction of property and infrastructure.

At Adabraka, a flood-prone area in Accra, a video shared on Facebook shows at least five cars almost covered in the floods as their upper parts are visible. In the same video, a lotto kiosk has been turned over and moving up and down gently on the surface of the floodwaters.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has reported in a separate report that scores of people have shared visuals from last Saturday evening's heavy downpours in Accra that left many parts of the capital flooded.

It rained heavily for hours on Saturday, May 21, and continued rather calmly on Sunday morning, May 22. Urban centres in the Greater Accra Region, including North Kaneshie, Kwame Nkrumah Circle, and Kasoa in the Central Region, got flooded.

Some Ghanaians took to social media, particularly Twitter, to upload videos and photos of flooded areas from Saturday evening's rains.

In a video online, the occupants of a house, including a man, can be heard screaming to alert the motorist from driving into what seemed like a flooded ditch.

One person said he was a ''White man'' as the male among them yelled his lungs to get the driver's attention.
