The Surowi River has overflowed its banks following torrential rains, cutting off the Atonkwa and Abeena communities, near Elmina in the Central Region.

Yesterday, vehicles could not move to the two communities, as the floodwaters spilled over onto the main road.

Schoolchildren from other villages who attend school in the two towns and their teachers could not attend school.

The Municipal Officer of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), Mr Patrick Obeng Yeboah, said a situation report would be sent to the NADMO Regional Office for further action.

“We have assessed the situation and will send our report to the regional office tomorrow”.

Mr Yeboah explained that the bridge over the Surowi River was too small and a major contributor to what had become the perennial flooding.

As a result of that, he said, the river overflowed its banks onto the road any time there was a downpour.
