About 300 persons displaced in Enchi’s flooding, NADMO recommends resettlement
A Sunday down pour has displaced close to 300 persons in the Aowin Municipality of the Western North Region. The disaster, which many has observed as a recurring incident in parts of Enchi and neighboring communities’ results from a spillover from a major river and streams in the area. Enchi Edumasi, Nakaba and Mfante Newtown are the most affected communities, with some other communities being severed by the Dusue River. Dozens of buildings and other structures have been collapsed, and farmlands flooded.
He recommended that sections of these communities be resettled to avert future disasters.
“In fact, its a very low land and if resettlement is possible, it think that would be better” he empahasised.
The Municipal Assembly is yet to mobilise some resources to support these affected individuals. Director for the National Disaster Management Organisation, Aowin Municipal, Alfred Quayson told Skyy News that the Regional Directorate of NADMO is yet to provide some relief items too.
Currently, he said, the assembly has run out of stock, adding the lives of these 300 persons are left to the fate of benevolent individuals or organisations.
“We don’t have anything at the moment” he cried.
“They don’t have anything to eat…if something small is given to us, it will be most appreciated” he said.
More coming soon….
