Heavy rains over the weekend left portions of Kwame Nkrumah Circle flooded.

The Odaw river was overflowing as a result of the heavy rains, while parts of Las Palmas restaurant were partially submerged with water. The road linking the Ring Road West towards Ako Adjei interchange was also flooded, hindering vehicular movement for sometime. 

Passengers were compelled to alight from their vehicles and walk through the water, while other vehicles were forced to change their routes.
