Torrential rainfall killed one person and caused the disappearance of others, affecting the Greater Accra Region, southern Ghana, causing floods due to the water release of the Weija Dam, and resulting in displacement and damage. According to media reports, approximately 1,500 people have been displaced, 25 rescued, and 1,000 houses flooded in Ga South Municipal District, western Greater Accra Region. In addition, the water supply has been interrupted in some areas following the releases of the dam. Further heavy rainfall could trigger additional flooding in low-lying communities near rivers and dams.
