Torrential rains that lasted several hours have submerged homes and displaced many in the Eastern Region capital, Koforidua.

The heavy rains on Wednesday forced many residents to abandon their homes for fear of being drowned.

Joy News' Eastern Region Correspondent, Kofi Siaw said residents at worst hit areas, like Abrewa Nkwanta and Nsukwa, are salvaging what is left of their household appliances and other properties.

“The floods also took over the main street, causing heavy traffic”, Kofi said Thursday.

The flooding was worsened by choked gutters, which residents say blocked the flow of water.
