We’re working on power cuts caused by downpour – ECG

The Electricity Company of Ghana has assured that its engineers “are working assiduously to rectify the faults and restore power supply to the affected customers.”

The assurance comes after some areas in Accra started experiencing power cuts following the downpour on Tuesday morning.

The Electricity Company of Ghana confirmed that the storm “has caused outages within the distribution network.”

“Customers experiencing outages within their individual premises should kindly contact our call centre or report to the nearest ECG office,” it added in the statement.

The worst affected areas by the downpour included Adabraka, Odorna, Kingsby Junction, Graphic Road, Agbgbloshie and surrounding areas.

Homes were submerged and small containers carried off by runoff water.

Some persons were also reported missing and feared dead.

The Ghana Meteorological Agency warned of a rainstorm which is expected to hit the eastern and coastal areas of the country today, Tuesday, June 9, 2020.

A statement from the Agency said, although the “thunderstorm” will affect the eastern portions of the country, most places in the coast are also expected to be affected.
