Pictures: Floods submerge properties in Accra


Thursday’s morning torrential rains in Ghana’s capital, Accra blocked several principal roads and forced quite a number of people out of their offices and homes. Many have also been trapped.

Already there are reports of cars being submerged by floods in areas such as Kwame Nkrumah Circle, Alajo, Kwashibu, Kaneshie and Mallam.

The Ghana Meteorological Agency had warned that today’s rains will continue for a while longer, and therefore advised the general public to avoid fast flowing water, move from lower ground to higher places if need be and call emergency lines- including 112 should the need arise.

Exactly a year ago, over 160 people lost their lives on June 3 when flood disaster compounded by an explosion hit Accra.

Below are pictures of some scenes in Accra.
