Due to the two day rains and following floods in the capital of Accra, Ghana, the worst has happened.

Even though there have been recorded deaths year after year because of poor drainage systems in the city, nothing seemed to have changed and the deaths had to happen again this year.

On tuesday night, there was an explosion at a filling station which killed 96 people on the spot. A few were injured but now, the total number of deaths has risen to 150.

The Ghanaian president has declared 3-days of mourning for victims of the disasters. The Government has also released GHS 60 million to support flood victims and rescue efforts. 

We pray the souls of the departed will rest in peace.
