The heavy rains is here again and Ghanaians must brace for the expected effect of these downpours which is devastating. Most of these disasters are preventable but due to indiscipline on the part of Ghanaians who choose to build in water path thereby causing flooding. More rain and storms are expected in the coming months with Strong winds and lightning. Then we'll have to watch where these rains fall the heaviest, and put adequate preparation in place to avert any disaster.
As reported by Angel News on their afternoon news, a married couple living within Ahenema Kokoben of the Atwima Nwabiagya District have died sadly in their rooms. This was after strong winds and heavy rain broke the wall of the room where the couple were lying in and the ceiling collapsed in on them killing them instantly.
The victims are Bardy Boye and Joyce Larweh. Confirming the news, Chief Inspector Emmanuel Opoku Addai indicated that the wall blocking the house and the flood caved in and that weakened the house to collapse on the married Couple whiles they were sleeping. Their bodies have since been deposited at the morgue he said.
The DCE for the area, Nana Otchere Tawiah advised the citizenry to eschew the habit of building in water ways as this has the tendency of bringing a huge disaster.
