Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has donated some money to support flood victims in West Mamprusi district in the North East Region.
This was after nearly 700 residents in some communities were displaced by torrential flooding that has wreaked havoc in the area.
Residents in some four communities in the North East Region were forced to evacuate on October 1, following a heavy downpour.
Dr Bawumia who was on tour in the Greater Accra Region cut short his tour and headed to the area to make the donation.
Addressing the people of the area, he assured them that once the rains stop, the government will assist them to build houses that can withstand heavy rains.
The rains have destroyed properties running into thousands of cedis and rendered many homeless.
Two dams at Dimia and Guabluga also burst when the rains began which worsened the situation.
Rising water levels inundated the communities sparking chaos as panicked residents ran helter-skelter to salvage what was they could.
The situation also caused the main Walewale-Nalerigu road to submerge, leaving a never seen traffic on the busy highway with dozens of travelers and motorists stranded.
