Northern Floods: 35 lives lost in three years


Summary short_text

Floods in Northern Ghana have claimed a total of 35 lives from 2018 to 2020, according to statistics from the National Disaster Management Organisation.

Dr. Chrys Anab, Lecturer, Department for Sustainable Development Studies, University for Development Studies, Tamale, noted that people needed a minimum of two years to recover from the impact of floods, adding that, relief items were good, but reactionary measures were often not adequate to mitigate the suffering of the flood victims.

He said it was sad to note that as many as 127 people were displaced by floods out of which 80 houses were destroyed in the Upper West Region in 2019 whilst in 2020, 775 people were displaced by floods with 111 houses destroyed.
