Photos/ Videos: Early morning rains flood Accra, Kumasi

Early morning rains have rendered many roads in Accra and Kumasi unmotorable.

Reports coming in from several parts of the country indicate many intersections in the major cities have been flooded and motorists are finding it difficult to use them.

In Accra, there are, as at now, three accidents on the Accra-Tema motorway causing heavy traffic on the already busy route.

Motorists who called into Joy FM’s Super Morning Show expressed frustration at the development, especially because there are no traffic wardens to control the chaos.

At Okponglo Junction on the Accra-Aburi road, Peter – a caller- said he is been in traffic for more than an hour to reach a Shiashi, about 500 meters from the junction.

“It is crazy out here, the traffic is terrible, all the traffic lights have gone off there is no single policeman, there’s no one directing traffic and people are just doing their own thing,” he said.
