Tidal waves: Displaced Ketu South residents cry for relocation

Displaced residents of Ketu South Municipality in the Volta Region are appealing to government to relocate them following the destruction of their houses by tidal waves yesterday.

Joy News’ Volta Region correspondent Ivy Setordjie reports tens of residents at Adena, Blekusu, Dzita, Hovi, Denu, Keta and an island called Vuzeme in the Ketu South District had to sleep in the open, with others perching with other relatives because their houses had been inundated by the waves.

The residents have for years been enduring the devastating effects of the tidal waves and last night’s torrential rains did not help matters.

The sea overflowed its banks, submerging the houses sited close to the shore, Setordjie indicated.

The residents, according to Setordjie, are asking government to build a sea defence wall as a permanent solution to the problem.

Before that though, the residents say they need to be relocated.
