General News

A heavy downpour in the early morning of Thursday, 13 May 2021, submerged a number of houses in Damongo, the Savanna regional capital.

The rains, which started at about 12 am, lasted for hours, flooding several parts of the capital.

A tricycle in one of the suburbs was washed away by the floodwaters.

Officers of the Ghana National Fire Service and the National Disaster Management Organisation were at the affected homes to examine the extent of the damage.

The Fufulso-Damongo road was also flooded at Achubunyor, a farming community near Damongo, thus, denying passengers access to both sides.

Passenger cars were also unable to ply the road.
