Some have had to use canoes to avoid drowning. They describe the situation as a crisis.

According to them, the flood is a result of an overflow of the Weija dam.

“This stretches from the Weija dam. We heard that there was an overflow at Nsawam and anytime this incident happens, those around the Weija, Oblogo, and Tetegu are the victims because there would be a flood definitely.
