Speaking on the Citi Breakfast Show; the Head of Forecasting, at the Ghana Meteorological Agency, Mr. Tettey Portuphy said; Ghana will be experiencing a few more rains in the coming days before rainy season ends, and that; while the volume of rains this year would most likely be lower than last year’s; it still has the potential of wreaking havoc in some communities in the country.
Mr. Portuphy also stated that, “For those of us along the coastal areas, we should expect more rains. We are still in June, and so we are not out of the woods yet, so we have to brace ourselves for a few more rains before we get out of it”.
He also advised that; “It has made a lot of places saturated already so any rain that comes again will be very devastating. So people who know that they are living in flood-prone areas should try and move out and after the raining season they can come back because any little rain that will come will be devastating especially for those in low-lying areas”.
Mr. Tettey Portuphy’s made these comments following the recent rains across the country, between Wednesday (23rd June), and Sunday (26th June 2021) evening; which caused flooding in some area of the country.
The rains have caused about 200 residents to be displaced at Atasemanso in the Kumasi, death of a 50-year-old woman at Anloga, in the Oforikrom Municipality of the Ashanti Region, and many more.
