The floods impacted GRIDCo's distribution station in Sogakope, causing widespread power outages.

ECG swiftly implemented measures, rerouting power from alternative stations to minimize risks and property damage.

Christina Jatoe-Kaleo, the ECG regional manager, revealed the operational disruptions during a press briefing in Ho.

Power supply from Adidome to Keta was affected, prompting ECG to utilize its Aflao station for the affected areas.
