One major causes of flooding are heavy rainfall which is natural. Talking about heavy rainfall and flooding, ghana has seen and experience a lot but yet to free itself from the lessons.
I got on my Facebook page on 22nd June 2020 to caution the government after experiencing this flood situation in parts of Accra the capital city.
Most of the towns in the capital city have no drainage systems at all and those towns that have few, are also too shallow
During heavy rainfall, water needs a proper channel to flow through.
There are a lot of structures and buildings built on these channels that the waters are supposed to flow through. These are causing a whole lot of flooding to the extent that life and properties are being lost every year the rains come.
This coming June July 2021, are we ready when the rains come or we will be there with our arms folded up?
The government and agencies responsible have to get up now, look at the drainage systems, and start to construct them properly.
We need deeper and well-constructed drainage systems to prevent any disaster or flooding.
Let's wake up and spread the news of building a better drainage system.
#fix the drainage systems
