The Ministry of Works and Housing has cautioned persons living in flood-prone areas in Accra to relocate as soon as possible.
According to the Ministry, information from the Ghana Meteorologic Agency indicates that there will be a heavy downpour, hence the need for such persons to take precaution.
In their rainfall forecast, the agency said “above normal” rainfall should be expected for the months of March, April and May.
The warning came after Sunday’s downpour which destroyed properties and left some persons stranded in Accra.
In an interview with Citi News , Minister of Works and Housing, Samuel Atta Kyea cautioned persons in the flood-prone areas to find other places to stay as the situation will worsen in the coming days.
“We are being educated by the meteorological agency that the rainfall patterns this year will be above normal which is to say there will be heavy downpours,” he said.
