Obuasi East Assembly Building Roofing ripped off By Rain
No casualties have been recorded so far.
The Obuasi East District Assembly building roofing has been ripped off after few minutes of rainfall.
The Assembly which was split from Obuasi Municipal in 2017 has since been using a place gifted to them by Anglogold Ashanti as works are ongoing on their building.
The rains started at 5 pm on Wednesday, January 13 and lasted about twenty minutes, but was preceded by heavy lightning and thunder which is believed to be the root cause of the havoc.
The Assembly was not the only victim of the rain, about 10 other houses were also affected leaving tens displaced without a shelter at PTP, a suburb in Obuasi.
In an interview with the Assemblymember for the Area, Honorable Elder Ansah, he confirmed that "I was not around, I took my child to school in Accra but I've been informed of the happenings by the committee members in my community."
He also confirmed that there were no casualties saying "God being so good, we have not recorded any casualties as at now."
This is also the first time PTP has recorded such incident.
Authorities are yet to pass comment as investigations are underway.
