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.

She added that the affected persons were stranded and helpless, while others are living with their relatives and friends.

She called on government and other benevolent organizations to assist in re-roofing the affected houses and build the collapsed ones.
