Heavy rain have been affecting south-eastern Ghana since 27 November, causing the overflow of the Dawhenya irrigation dam and floods that resulted in displacement and damage.

According to media, as of 1 December, 200 households have been displaced in temporary shelters due to floods that affected at least 600 houses in Dawhenya Town, in Ningo-Prampram District, southern Greater Accra Region.

Part of the Greater Accra Region was affected by the Akosombo Dam overflow in mid October that caused the displacement of 26,000 people.

Over the next 48 hours, more rainfall is forecast over southern Ghana.
