Life has come to a standstill at Avotime Kpetoe in the Volta Region as torrential rains have forced residents to lock themselves up in their homes.

Teachers, students, traders and other workers have been forced to forgo work and school for fear of losing their lives in the floods, bringing economic activity in the area to a virtual standstill.

Sources in the area tells BestNewsGH.com that the rains have been on for several days now, without any sign of stopping, a situation that has become a big worry to the residents as hundreds of homes are reportedly submerged.

Officials of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) have complained of not having access to the affected communities.

NADMO regional Director Devine Bassing explained that there has not been loss of lives or properties, adding that the problem is the inability of the residents to get into the town and the inability of the teachers, students and traders to go about their regular activities.

Devine Bassing added that access to medical care and other critical and essential services in these crucial moments has also become problematic.
