Residents of Ghana’s capital, Accra, are no strangers to floods which have become an annual occurrence.

But the latest disaster which hit the city on June 4, 2015 has never been seen; it has been described as unprecedented.

A combination of extreme floods and an explosion at a sales point of the Ghana Oil Company (Goil) at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle claimed over 100 lives and displaced thousands of residents.

The disaster started with a normal rainfall but the rains intensified as the night wore on resulting in an historic flooding in many parts of the city.
