GMet to Ghanaians: Expect more rainstorms in May

Several trees fell on some stationary vehicles at different locations in the capital as a result of Monday's downpour

The Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMet) is warning of stronger winds with rain throughout the month of May across the country.

Several trees fell on about ten stationary vehicles at different locations in the capital as a result of Monday’s downpour.

Report suggests two people who were seriously injured as a result of the development are currently receiving medical attention at separate hospitals in Accra.

Speaking to Benjamin Offei-Addo on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Tuesday (7 May), a meteorologist with GMet, Vincent Antwi Asante advised the public to follow regular weather updates and take precautions.

“In this month of May, we are going to experience intense rain that will be accompanied by strong winds,” he said.

“What we are going to observe from now is more of these rain storms… It will be coming from either Nigeria or Togo and it will be drifted into our country. Sometimes we are going to have some of them developing here and drifting to other parts of the country. So these are some of the rainfalls that we are going to be observing.”

“And as we have said, it is going to be a bit intense. It will be accompanied by strong winds, especially in this month of May. When we get to June, it will minimise a bit but that is not to say that it will not be windy,” he said.
