The National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), is conducting a disaster impact assessment in the Eastern Regional capital, Koforidua, after heavy rains left two people dead and several properties destroyed in the area over the weekend.
Two people were found dead in a taxi after being trapped in the flood waters.
Citi News gathered that, the town was submerged, with parked cars washed away and several property destroyed.
Some residents were also reported to have sustained various degrees of injury.
According to the Eastern Regional Coordinator of NADMO, Ransford Owusu Boakye, they are hopeful the assessment would be concluded later today [Monday] before relief items are distributed to the affected families.
A freelance journalist, Ferdinand Akuffo Baah, told Citi News areas such as Nsukwa, Kenkey factory road, a bridge and a Church of Pentecost building on that stretch were badly affected.
‘Meteorological service warning’
The Ghana Meteorological Agency on Saturday warned of a storm in Accra, but it is unclear whether that also affected parts of the Eastern Region.
