Ghana went through a difficult moment and rescuers were overstretched when some parts of the capital, Accra were flooded and compounded by an explosion at the Goil filling station at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle last year June 3, 2015.

Hundreds of people were caught in the inferno and trapped by the flood at Circle.

Over 150 people lost their lives that day. Properties running into millions of cedis were lost to the floods and fire.
