Portions of the roof of Ghana’s Parliament house was ripped off Tuesday night as a massive rainstorm hit Accra.

The event stopped proceedings at the time as the leaky roof saw MPs seeking shelter.

The rainstorm, which affected most parts of the city and was preceded by a very strong wind, has damaged parts of the house which MP’s say could take months, to fix.

“Some Members of Parliament told TV3 they were in the House when they heard a sudden “big bang” only to rush out to find most part of the roof ripped off. They said but for the fact that it was night, the storm would have caused severe havoc to the cars.” 3news reports.

“According to the MPs, it will take about 3 months to fix the damage.” the report added.

National Security Minister Albert Kan Dapaah and officials of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) were later on site to assess the situation and take steps to fix it.
