Flash-flood Ravages Ghana, Renders Many Homeless, Kill Seven


At least seven people drowned and villagers were rendered homeless when flash floods hit north-eastern Ghana, witnesses and community leaders said on Tuesday.

A rescue team has been dispatched by the country’s National Disaster Management Organisation (Nadmo) to assist residents of the communities affected by the flooding.

Reports say the flooding was caused by torrential rains and the overspill of excess water from the Bagre dam in neighbouring Burkina Faso, which washed away homes in the area.

Nadmo officials say they are still assessing the extent of damage as the water also submerged a large area of cropland raising concerns about possible food shortages in the future.
