Three additional severe rains are expected to impact the southern half of the nation before the end of June, according to the Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMet).
The phenomena is expected to occur because the rainy season’s peak is nearing, according to Nana Kofi Opoku, senior meteorologist at the GMET’s research and applied meteorology department.
“When we look at climatology and the prognosis that we provided for the March, April, May, and June season,” he continued, “it appears that we have on average, three more similar instances to occur.”
After torrential rains drenched portions of Accra on Saturday, causing flooding, he made the statements on the Super Morning Show on Monday.
He said that the occurrence happens during the (raining) season’s climax.
“During the peak of the season in the southern part of the country, particularly in June, an average of three large rainfall occurrences, such as the one that occurred on Saturday, occur.” So, on average, we’re anticipating three,” he stated.
Accra and neighboring cities in the Greater Accra Region, including North Kaneshie, Kwame Nkrumah Circle, and Kasoa in the Central Region, were inundated after several hours of rain.
The occurrence caused traffic congestion on many main highways in the capital. Following Saturday evening’s downpour, Ghanaians went to Twitter to post videos of flooded regions. As a consequence, some homes were flooded.
