The flood has entered most homes and destroyed several properties. As at this time, no casualties has been recorded.
Complaints from some residence are that, people built on rain ways which makes it difficult for the rain to freely flow. Others also lamented about the poor drainage in this areas and claimed this could have reduced or prevented the floods. Choked gutters with plastic materials among others are the causes of this flooding. It is believed that many homes now resorted to cementing or laying pavements which makes it difficult for rain water to sink into the ground. This is believed to be among the many causes of flooding in Accra.
