Two Rainstorms Heading for Ghana – GMet Warns

The Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMet) says its weather monitoring station has observed double rainstorms heading for the country on Thursday, May 16.

According to the forecast released on Thursday morning, the Nigerian storm should kick in around 9:30 am.

Areas within the coastal and northern sectors will be hit by heavy rainfall, strong winds, and thundery weather.

“A rainstorm that is moderately producing thunderstorms with rain over northern Benin into Togo is expected to drift further westwards to affect the northern half of Ghana. However, a separate rainstorm observed over Nigeria is also expected to propagate westwards to affect the coastal and middle sectors of the country,” the statement read.

GMet added that the risk of flooding and windstorms is high, thus, residents within potential flooding areas should be alert and take action.

The recent severe rainstorm left in its wake destruction in parts as trees fell and damaged several cars.

Some billboards were also destroyed in the process.
