Tamale, July 25, GNA – A down pour that lasted
for about an hour within the Tamale Metropolis on Tuesday, led to severe
flooding and caused the death of a teacher.

Hajia Fati Bapuni lost her life when the
floods swept her away in her vehicle while unconfirmed reports also have it
that a school child had also been killed.

The floods also destroyed a number of property
and the most hit areas includes Sakasaka, Gumani, Business Senior High School,
Vitting, Gurugu and Fuo.

Mr Salifu Saeed, the Northern Regional
Minister who visited some of the affected areas as well as the Tamale Teaching
Hospital, appealed for help to immediately settle the displaced persons.

He was accompanied by officials from National
Disaster Management Organisation, and personnel from the Ghana National Fire
Service.

He said although government would assist the
affected persons there was the need for the private sector to support to
alleviate the plight of the affected persons.

He said the short period of rainfall and its
attendant havoc meant that there were problems with planning as well as the
drainage system in the Metropolis.

“I am very sad for what I have seen. The
rain lasted for less than two hours and it had been fatal,” Mr Saeed told
the GNA.
