Parts of Accra Flooded Following Heavy Monday Morning Rainfall

Following a heavy downpour on Monday morning, Accra, the capital city of Ghana, experienced significant flooding once again.

The rainfall caused severe traffic congestion, leaving many commuters, including workers, traders, students, and motorists, stranded and drenched.

In areas such as Pokuase, Achimota, Odawna, Tesano, and Alajo, motorists were forced to pull over to the side of the road, seeking shelter from the rain.

Traffic came to a standstill, with vehicles lining up along the roads, forcing some commuters to continue their journeys on foot, slowing down the start of the second week of May.

Regrettably, this has become a recurring issue in Accra, with the city often experiencing flooding even after light rainfall. To exacerbate the situation, some individuals take advantage of the flooding to dispose of their waste, exacerbating the problem.

After just an hour of rain, a resident was caught on camera submerging his rubbish bin in the floodwaters, disposing of his garbage.

Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident, as the drainage systems in many parts of Accra are clogged with plastic, wrappers, and cans, posing a potential health hazard and increasing the risk of disease outbreaks.
