Only in Ghana's capital city: Accra Floods Again

Flooding is arguably the weather related hazard that is most widespread around the globe. It can occur virtually anywhere. A flood is defined as water overflowing onto land that usually is dry. Friday's early morning rains have flooded some parts of Accra which included Kaneshie, Avenor, Circle and its environs. The issue of proper drainage systems have over the years been a major problem in the capital city of Ghana, Accra.

Flooding is often thought of as aresult of heavy rainfall, but floods can arise in a number of ways that are not directly related to ongoing weather events. Thus, a complete description of flooding must include processes that may have little or nothing to do with meteorological events. The origins of flooding, therefore, ultimately lie in atmospheric processes creating precipitation, no matter what specific event causes the flooding.

Our leaders needs to fix the drainage systems in our capitals to prevent any disaster.
