About 30 houses at Penkwase North in Sunyani got flooded on Saturday following a heavy downpour which rendered inmates of houses marooned.

Damage caused by the three-hour downpour could not be immediately assessed but Mr Fred Kwasi Agyemang, one of the affected landlords, told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that the floods carried away many valuable items running into millions of cedis.

Ms Elizabeth Frimpong, Assembly Member for the affected area, attributed the floods to lack of adequate drainage system in the area and that arrangements were being made with the Ghana Highways Authority (GHA) to construct a better drainage system
