A taxi was swept into a gutter causing a woman to drown

Two people are reported dead after heavy rains ravaged parts of Koforidua in the Eastern Region on Sunday.

The town was submerged in flood waters which washed away parked vehicles and other property. Some residents sustained various degrees of injury as well.

Ferdinand Akuffo Baah, a freelance journalist who toured the town with the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) told Citi News that they found two people dead in a taxi after being trapped in the flood waters.

Yesterday, the meteorological agency warned of a storm in Accra but it is unclear whether that also affected parts of the Eastern Region.
