Heavy rains cause flooding in some parts of Accra

Residents of Ashongman awoke to a nasty surprise this morning as their homes flooded for the second time in less than a month.

Residents have only just got over the last major flooding around 3 weeks ago and are trying to raise money within the community to make a higher ground and prevent flooding.

As one huge truck tries to pass through the street, which now resembles a river, a huge fight breaks out as residents protest his wheels will cause a tidal wave adding more destruction to their already soggy situation.

Traders ran to their containers to access the damage but one lady didn't let the weather dampen her spirits as she set up her porridge stand to feed her wet and hungry neighbours.
