Head of Research at the Meteorological Service, Charles York indicated that, “the weather warning was given at 17:38 GMT on the 3rd of June, 2015.”

“You give warnings and people do not even care whatever you are going to say. People do not even take warnings seriously,” he lamented. Read more Weather warning was issued but… - Meteo Service

York pointed the Ghanaian culture of dumping waste into drainages and building in waterways as some of the causes of the perennial flooding in Ghana.
