The heavy rainfall on 20 May 2019, Monday has flooded the newly built terminal 3 at Kotoka International Airport (KIA). Most areas in Accra are also facing flooding issues when it rains.
Besides the flooding issue which happened on Monday, May 20, water from chocked gutters were spilled unto the roads at Kwame Nkrumah Circle which left the passers no option but to walk through it. Some drivers managed to drive through the flood whiles other vehicles were also trapped in it.
According to D FM reporter, the people around the area said comparing Monday’s downpour to past years said Monday’s rain is better and not heavier than what they saw years back.
In an interview with Mr. Francis, he said today’s rain is a bit better as compared to two-three years back. I have been here for ten years now and I know what am talking about. It is normally like this, the big gutter, that leads to the Odaw has been filled to the brim with water. The government should fix the drainage system, the drainage is poor. The gutters around are chocked if it rains heavily, flooding is massive”.
