The on-going devastating sea erosion in some communities along the coast of the Ketu South Municipality has turned its ugly hands to historical graveyards.

Currently, the hard hit communities are Salakorpe, Amutsinu, Adina and other communities. The tidal waves which has already led to loss of properties is about to hit other communities in the area namely: Agorko, Tetekorpe, Adafienu, Hedranawo, Denu and the Southern Parts of Aflao including Aflao Market and the main Border.

In this photo news, we bring to you some pictures from towns where the Atlantic Ocean is gaining ground, endangering lives and has already destroyed landing properties running into thousands of Ghana Cedis in the recent past.

Sea erosion has to do with the removal of sediment and rocks along the seashore due to the action of waves, flows, tides, wind-driven water, marine ice, or other impacts of storms.

The inward-looking departure of the beach or the sand can be measured over a temporal scale of tides and other short-term recurring processes, caused by hydraulic action, abrasion or corrosion by wind and water, and other forces, which may be natural or through human activities.

According to a report published by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) in 2019, “sea level rise caused by climate change will increase coastal erosion worldwide significantly changing the coasts and low lying coastal areas” and the situation in Ketu South and other coastal communities in Ghana are local example for people to sea.
