Accra flooded again

A car submerged in  flood.A heavy rain yesterday flooded some parts of the Accra metropolis.

The affected areas included Kaneshie First Light, Obetsebi-Lamptey Circle, Obossey Okai, Royal House Chapel area, and Mprampram among others.

The Ghanaian Times team which went round spotted cars submerged in water, while the premises of the Hyundai Automobile Company and the Government Technical Training Centre, near the Metro Mass Transit Office were flooded. 

Some drivers were seen wading through the floods, while others drove their vehicles passing through other routes to avoid the water.

The situation brought about heavy traffic at the Kaneshie First Light, and Obetsebi Circle among others.

A resident a Kaneshie, Emmanuel Mensah, in an interview with The Ghanaian Times, expressed worry over the constant floods in the capital after every rainfall.

He said Ghanaians should desist from dumping refuse into gutters and ensure that the environment was safe.

Mr. Mensah said such floods could be avoided if the public change their negative attitude towards the environment.

“It is sad to see that people are still throwing rubbish in the gutters despite the education to desist from such act,” he added.

Another resident, Mrs Elisabeth Addo urged authorities to punish recalcitrant people who dispose of waste in the metropolis anyhow.

She said such action would deter people from such negative practices.
