Rainstorm to hit Ghana tonight – GMA warns

A rainstorm is expected to hit the entire country on Thursday night, the Ghana Meteorological Agency has warned.

Senior Meteorologist at Agency, Mr Michael Padi,  told the Ghana News Agency that by weather indicators, the storm is likely to happen at about 7:00pm

He urged the public to take all necessary precautions to ensure that no unpleasant incidents occurred during the storm.

Mr Padi reminded the public on the need to avoid seeking shelter from underneath trees during such periods.

“Thundery activities easily get attracted to structures such as trees, and the risk of lightening is very high within tree shades,” he said.

Mr Padi said weak structures should be avoided when one was seeking shelter, since they were easily blown down by strong winds.

The senior meteorologist urged motorist to be extra cautious during the period.
