A female passenger has died when a taxi she was boarding submerged in flood at Nsukwao in the New-Juaben municipality of the Eastern region.
The vehicle which had four passengers on board, submerged when the driver attempted to drive through the flood at the Kenkey Factory road.
Three of the passengers were rescued by residents, but the flood towed away the driver and the female passenger.
The driver was later rescued in a heap of rubbish in an “unstable state.”
According to Starr News’ Eastern regional correspondent Kojo Ansah, the female passenger was found dead in the taxi as a rescue team of NADMO officials, fire service and police arrived at the scene.
Ansah reports that several houses had also been submerged with several properties destroyed as the rains set in.
Meanwhile, the MP for New-Juaben South Dr Mark Asibe Yeboah has abandoned his campaign launch in solidarity with the affected persons.
