The rain, which reportedly lasted for more than 3 hours, left one person injured and caused destruction to property worth thousands of Ghana cedis.

Neighbouring communities like Fesi, Gadza, Dafor and Kpando Torkor were also not sparred from the raging storm.

Roofs of 55 houses, schools and churches were ripped off, displacing the victims.
