3 die in rainstorm in Accra NADMO confirms multiple deaths in Accra

At least three persons have been confirmed dead in Accra, the country’s capital, following a downpour Sunday evening.

The National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), that confirmed the deaths to JoyNews, said the fatalities occurred at different parts of the capital.

Greater Accra Regional Director of NADMO, Archibald Cobbinah, said one death was recorded at Awudome and another at Avenor.

“A lady was also electrocuted,” Mr Cobbinah said, adding that a woman and her baby were also missing and a search team was yet to locate them.

Sunday evening’s rain left parts of the city including Kaneshie, Dzorwulu and Kwame Nkrumah Circle flooded.

NADMO said its team was reaching out to other affected persons to offer relief items.

Speaking to Joy News, Mr Cobbinah appealed to the public to cease indiscriminate dumping of refuse in gutters and drainages.

“This is a communal responsibility,” he stressed.

Meanwhile, at Lartebiokorshie, also a suburb of Accra, a Nissan saloon car had been smashed after the rainstorm uprooted a tree which landed on it.
