Photo Story: 2 Hours of Rains Sink Parts of Accra

Hours of persistent rains Friday in the capital Accra has left parts of the city flooded to predictable detail.

At the famous Kwame Nkrumah Circle – the scene of arguably the most deadly flooding disaster in Ghana – there were fearful scenes of flooding with terrified people running for cover.

The June 3 Disaster that left more than 150 dead from flooding played out in the minds of those stranded and looking for help.

The Odaw river was threatening to burst its banks.

At the Goil fuel station where an explosion worsened the floods last June, the scene was a virtual playback of black Wednesday night. The flood waters there rose to above kneel level.

Buses at Circle, abandoned taxis and saloon cars are especially sinking in the floods.
