26 houses collapse in flood; 100 displaced

A devastating flood has submerged Ahiatroga – an Island community in the Kwahu Affram Plains South District of the Eastern region – leading to the collapse of about 26 houses, displacing close to 100 peasant farmers.

Most of the houses left behind are on the verge of collapse as the floods have soaked the base making it unsafe to occupy. The displaced residents mostly women and children are currently putting up in a church building and a classroom.

The floods have also submerged large acres of farms in the community, destroying crops which were near harvesting creating imminent hunger.

The flooding was caused by the River Affram which overflown its banks.

Assembly member for the area, Atitsogbey Gideon Senyo, told Starr News the situation has become dire given that most of the buildings in the community are mud houses.

According to him, the situation is pathetic and called on authorities to provide them with relief items.
