According to some residents in the area, the school compound has become a flood-prone as a result of a wall constructed by another resident. They have therefore advised the school to construct a wall to prevent any eventuality.

Scores of residents who were also affected included a widow who had been scooping water from her room after the floods, when Joy News visited.

For Joseph Mahama, a sliding door manufacturer, his shop was under siege as a result of what he said was a lack of proper drainage system in the area.
