Zongo communities not spared by heavy rain in Accra

Two overnight showers of rain in Accra within a week tore down buildings and cars and killed people. The downpour did not spare people in the Zongo communities where many sleep in makeshift buildings and stores.

The destruction occurred at places including Alajo, the community between Nima and Newtown, Circle etc.

Below is a video showing some images from these communities after the rain.
