Torrential rains across the country have caused various damages including the loss of life

Reports from the Ashanti Region indicate that a 6-year-old primary school pupil has drowned in Moshie Zongo, a suburb of Kumasi following a 30-minute downpour on Monday afternoon. 

The incident, which has been confirmed by the Ashanti Regional Director of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), Kwabena Nsenkyire, adds up to about 10 of such deaths this month. 

According to the Director, the incident occurred at exactly 5:53 pm on Monday evening when asked to confirm the number of deaths recorded in the region, the Director responded that the figure was 10. 

Twenty-Nine persons were reported dead and nineteen injured after a week of torrential rains in the Upper East Region earlier this month. 

In the Eastern Region, a downpour caused some 1,200 residents of Asuboni Rails in the Kwahu West Municipality of the Eastern Region to be displaced following the heavy rainfall.

The 7-hour downpour destroyed some 50 homes forcing residents to take refuge in a church building. 

A downpour in the Kumasi metropolis on Sunday exposed city authorities’ inability to enforce sanitation by-laws and the continuous attitude by residents of dumping garbage into drains.
