Severe flooding has struck major parts of Tarkwa, a town in the Western region of Ghana, as the Bonsa River overflows its banks.
The rising waters have caused residents to abandon their vehicles, while buildings find themselves surrounded by a deluge of water.
Per reports, the river had been experiencing high water levels for several days, but the imminent overflow was not apparent until three consecutive days of heavy rainfall pounded the area.
As a result of the flooding, Tarkwa’s connection with the Bonsa area has been completely severed, leading to significant traffic congestion within the town.
The residents of Tarkwa are currently facing the challenges posed by the rising waters, and local authorities have been mobilized to respond to the crisis. They are coordinating efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of those affected by the flooding.
