Flood

Get to safe havens; more rain is on the way, according to the NADMO.

Because further rain is predicted tonight, the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) has asked residents in flood-prone areas to seek refuge in safe havens and higher ground. 


The advise follows the Ghana Meteorological Agency's (G-Met) announcement on Tuesday that further rain will fall tonight in areas including as Accra, Kasoa, Cape Coast, and Takoradi. 

"All citizens living in these areas are reminded to take precautionary measures to keep safe, specifically those residing in flood-prone areas," NADMO said in a statement to the general public. "To escape risk, such people are encouraged to relocate to higher ground and identify safe havens in their communities."


The public was also urged to pay attention to the weather warning and behave accordingly, according to the statement. 


The weather advisory also includes emergency contact numbers 112, 0302964884, and 0299350699 for those who may require assistance during the downpour. 


Meanwhile, following Wednesday's downpour, some major towns in the Central Region were flooded. Cape Coast, Moree, and a few settlements in the Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese district were all hit by the storm. 


Many locals in the region saw flood water flooding into their shops and rooms.
