The flood, which followed rains which lasted a period of two hours, is reported to have destroyed some forty-four houses and left hundreds homeless. Reports say the traffic situation in the municipality has been worsened due to the flood situation.


Electricity to the area has been reportedly cut because the high tension cables of the Volta River Authority have snapped.
