About twenty have been rescued by the Greater Accra Regional Directorate of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) on Tuesday during the heavy downpour.

The victims were rescued in areas such as Dansoman, Odorkor and Dzowulu.

The Greater Accra Regional NADMO Director, Archibold Cobbina, made the revelations in an interview with 3FM’s Sunrise on Tuesday hosted by Alfred Ocansey.

“A lot of areas have been flooded. Areas like Ledzokuku, some parts of Tema, Sakaman, parts of Spintex road, Odorkor, Circle, Kaneshie First Light, among others”, he explained.

Mr. Cobbina said “about twenty people have been rescued around Dansoman, Odorkor, Dzowulu but others are also in other parts for the same rescue mission”.

“What we are trying to do is recuse them”.

The NADMO Director noted that “when they see that it is raining, that is where people bring out refuse and dump them into the raining waters”.

“People have dumped refuse right in the middle of the road at Sakaman”.
