Ghanian firefighters evacuated children from a flooded schoolhouse in Cape Coast on Tuesday, May 24, officials said, amid severe flooding across the region.
The Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) reported rescue workers responded to a distress call from the Mustard Seed Academy, located in Cape Coast, and evacuated 32 students trapped in classrooms.
Heavy rainfall lasted over seven hours in Accra on Monday, according to the Ghanian Times, destroying property, causing accidents, and forcing some residents to flee their homes.
The Ghana Meteorological Agency said the public should “brace for more rain” in the coming days as the country approaches the peak of its rainy season.
