Parts Of Accra Flood Again; Ghanaians Massively React

News coming in indicates that some parts of Accra have flooded again following the drops of rain on Monday. The Dzorwulu stretch of the N1 Highway had rains pouring onto the streets, making it difficult for motorists to use that stretch.

This seems to be the story of Accra anytime it rains for several hours. Several people migrate to other places anytime the rains start falling. This is because, they may lose their properties if they stay there.

Floods in Accra can only be attributed to three main causes. Throwing of waste substances on the streets and in gutters is one the main problems in Accra. These items chock the gutters, making it difficult for water to flow freely. Also, the kind of drainage systems in some parts of Accra are very poor. The gutters are small which can't hold the intensity of floods. Lastly, the unavailability of drainage systems at certain places in Accra. When it rains in Accra, the water just find it way into people's houses, destroying several properties.

Below are some reactions from some Ghanaians on social media
