Rainstorm renders residents homeless in Old Subri

Residents of Old Subri in the Wassa East District have been rendered homeless by a rainstorm which ravaged their homes on Saturday. A school and church buildings have also suffered severe damages. Assemblyman for the area, Emmanuel Sackey, is appealing to the authorities to support the displaced. The rainstorm occurred on Saturday afternoon. According to Assemblyman, Emmanuel Sackey, it rained for more than two hours, but the strong winds which caused most of the damage blew for less than ten minutes. The community was hit hard by the storm, leaving damaged buildings in its wake. Mr. Sackey tells Star News more than ten buildings have lost their roofing while 3 have collapsed. Among the damaged buildings are a school block and a church building. He says the District Authorities have been informed of the damage, but the absence of a District Chief Executive has increased the bureaucracy in finding a solution to the challenge.
