Agavedzi: Tidal waves destroy over 80 houses

The assemblyman for Agavedzi electoral area Eben Affah says the incident has brought commercial and educational activities to a halt

At least 80 houses in Agavedzi in the Ketu South Municipality of the Volta Region have been destroyed following Sunday’s (3 April) tidal waves in the community.

It is not yet clear how many people have so far been rendered homeless in the latest incident.

Adjoining communities, including Amutinu all along the Gulf of Guinea have also been affected, local authorities said.

The assemblyman for Agavedzi electoral area Eben Affah said the incident has brought commercial and educational activities to a halt.

“Yesterday, the tidal wave hit back at Agavedzi community again, which is very terrible and then so many houses were full of sea water. We had to gather boys to cut the major roads linking from Aflao to Keta so that the sea water can have its way to the lagoon, so that it can ease the tension of the sea water. We have been able to sustain the situation,” Affah told Asaase News.

“Before that, so many properties were damaged, some cemeteries too were affected and then the sacred forest, and people living around the road too were not happy with the happenings of yesterday. So far, it is 88 houses that have been damaged by the tidal wave,” he said.
