The gridlock began after a downpour around 4pm on Monday, May 13, 2024, leaving many commuters frustrated and stranded as silt obstructed traffic.

Reports indicated that travellers spent over nine hours on the Kasoa-Mallam road as they tried to get home.

The Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMET) has already warned that there will be more heavy rain in the coming weeks.

The GMET consequently urged residents in low-lying areas to prioritise safety by moving to higher ground to avoid floods.
