Reuters journalist Cooper Inveen has unfortunately experienced Accra’s annual flood disaster as he lodges in his hotel room.
The Reuters international correspondent in Ghana by way of Senegal and Sierra Leone has been lodging in Accra.
Above all, Cooper Inveen is on an official international assignment for Reuters.
His hotel room, located just off ring road central, near the interchange, managed to get flooded and hold the water.
The unfortunate incident is an aftermath of a heavy downpour in Accra from dawn to about seven o’clock in the morning.
Sadly, Cooper made his announcement on Twitter at 5:57 am, at what time his room was already filled with dirty stagnant water.
Sharing his ordeal with his network on Twitter, he wrote, “Waking up in Accra today… how’s your morning going?”
Watch the embarrassing video below.
Similarly, he posted a photo of his dog, Reggie. He wrote, “Don’t worry folks, Reggie found the high ground.”
See a photo of Reggie the dog below.
Cooper is a writer, photographer, and videographer interested in all things West Africa.
As a result, he is currently based in Dakar, Senegal.
On the other hand, Tweeps responding to the unfortunate video expressed their disgust at the situation.

Importantly, the Accra annual floods are not new to Ghanaians, yet the country continues to approach the disaster reactively.
