Hundreds of residents in Bilpela and Kalariga, suburbs of Tamale have been left homeless and cut off from the rest of Tamale after torrential rains swept through the Northern Region capital.

The heavy rains, which lasted for about an hour and half, flooded homes of the residents and destroyed many properties.

residents have attributed the latest floods to an abandoned road project, even though this is not the first time the communities have been flooded

Some residents told Joy News the flood could have been prevented had the abandoned road project – which has an accompanying drainage system – been completed.

They are therefore appealing to Tamale Metropolitan Assembly and the Tamale South Member of Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, to intervene before lives are lost.

“We want him to come and help us. This is too much for us”, said Yusif Mohammed a resident of Bilpela.

Officials have however said they are assessing the damage and would laise with the National Disaster and Management Organisation (NADMO) to support the affected victims.

The displaced persons are currently putting up with relatives and friends.
