The saddest and tragic one was the fact that found out that 5 people from one family died while sleeping and one alive which sustained various degree of injuries, because their building collapsed on them during the profuse rainfall at Ngyiresia in the Sekond-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly. The dead bodies were sent to Essikado Government Hospital and have been referred to Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital since there is no mortuary point at Essikado Government Hospital, the other one is still at Essikado Government Hospital undergoing treatment. The dead people ages range between 1-17 years. This incidence is in the know of NADMO, Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly.

It is a worrying incident and everybody is advised to do proper maintenance and refurbishment on their buildings if the need be to forestall incidences such as these, because rains will not falling now since we are in rainy season already here in Ghana. Additionally, we should be sanitation conscious in that we actively and practically desilt our choked gutters and others to ensure good drainage system in a bid to forestall flooding and other disasters.
