We haven’t finished with dealing with the fallout of last week’s floods and we already have another one to deal with.
Torrential rains in Bunkpurugu district of the Northern Region last night led to the flooding of the area, leading to the death of three residents.
According to myjoyonline:
“Three people are said to have died from flooding after torrential rains last night in the Bunkrugu district of the Northern Region.
The downpour also resulted in the destruction of houses and left many residents homeless.
MP for the area, Solomon Namliit Boar told Joy News help is needed urgently to alleviate the plight of the victims.
He said those who lost their lives in the flood are two ladies and child.
“A lot of houses have been ripped off…and we hope that so many can come in and help us with this drive [to support displaced persons]”, Mr Namliit said.
The Bunkrugu floods and death come eight days after scores died in floods that hit parts of the Accra.”
We hope disaster management personnel would help to contain the situation up there; although this illuminates why we shouldn’t think this is just a problem in the capital, it’s pretty much a national problem.
