“The sea is expected to remain choppy through Thursday,” says the forecaster. The water will be stormy today, tomorrow, and Thursday, so fishermen should be especially cautious. For the Volta Lake, this is the season when storms are brewing over their region, therefore they must go fishing and call us at 0302777172 for updates on when the storm will pass.” Felicity expressed herself.
According to the agency, Koforidua, Akyim Oda, Keta Krachi, Kintampo, Obuasi, Ho, and Kumasi would receive 50% of the rain, therefore residents should be aware.
