Several homes and schools have flooded in some parts of the Tamale Metropolis following heavy downpour in the Northern Region.

Heavily affected areas are in the Tamale Metropolis and Sangnarigu.

Communities such as Gumani, Nyanshegu, Fuo, Taha and Kanvili-Tuunaayili among others, have been hit hard by the Monday August 30, 2021 deluge thereby rendering some families homeless, while others have tried to salvage their belongings.

Reports gathered by Mynewsafric.com revealed that the downpour which started at about 8:45 am on Monday, continued until about 1:00 pm in the afternoon affecting communities such as Kalariga, Lamashegu South, parts of Changli, Kakpagyili, Lamankara, Bugyili, Taha-Yapala, parts of Vitting and Kulnyenvila.

Residents were left in despair as the downpour flooded their homes and in some cases blocked access to routes, living persons in those neighborhoods trapped in-doors for hours.

One of the affected resident of Nyanshegu community narrating his ordeal said “We were preparing to go out for our daily bread when the rains poured in – it’s been raining since and the drains are all overflowing and running into our homes as you can witness”.

He said they have been trapped indoors and are unable go out for fear of being carried away by the gushing waters.

Some walls also collapsed due to the downpour, which also peeled off the surface of some roads in the vicinity creating dangerous potholes that endangered the motoring publics.
