Flood

In the Cape Coast flood, a UCC security guard and three others were killed.

After heavy rains on Friday evening, three people were washed away by floods in Kwaprow, a suburb of Cape Coast in the Central Region.

Two elderly women and a University of Cape Coast Security Officer were among the victims.

According to the information acquired, the two elderly women, aged 80 and 85, were sleeping in their homes along a narrow bridge that was flooded, submerging them.

Unfortunately, due to their health, they were unable to flee.

The University of Cape Coast Security Officer was chasing his things that were being swept away by the flood, according to the report, but was swept away by the strong current of the water.

The remains of the three deceased have yet to be recovered, and a search for them is underway.

Many homes in the Kwaprow community were flooded, forcing inhabitants to seek shelter inside the chief's castle.

Meanwhile, Kwaprow's Development Chief, Nana Kwame Ntsiful V, has accused road contractors of the community's flooding.

He requested that the Ministry of Highways provide the neighborhood with gutters in order to eliminate floods in the area.
