Living legends: picture of people who are having dinning in a flooded area causes stir.

Accra accommodates 25 percent of Ghana’s Urban Population. With urban population growth always increasing, the city has grown rapidly, with slums developing along major river banks in the capital city of Ghana. The effect of this growth has caused a drastic reduction in the city’s vegetation cover. Accra’s total land area has lost much of it's vegetation cover. This is associated with Accra’s flooding and with the rapid uncontrolled urban growth.

A picture is making waves on the Internet which is causing stir. Two people were having a good time in a flooded area. They were eating thier meals in the flooded area under a tree. Take a look at the picture below.

Urban flooding is a serious and growing phenomenon affecting both developed and developing countries. In the face of rapid urbanization, climate variability and change and their corresponding changes in urban hydrology, urban flood events appear to be on the ascendency.
