The rainstorm which occurred between the hours of 8:30pm and 10:00pm Monday night caused a lot of destruction.
The hardest hit areas are the Bole Health Centre and Kurabaso Primary School where the roofs of both buildings got totally ripped off. The strong winds pulled down a mosque at Yelwe near Atta 130's house and also the old roofs of the Ghana Commercial Bank story building in the district got ripped off as well.
Communities such as Sawaba, Mempeasem, Jakala among others saw the roofs of many houses being pulled with accompanying loss in valuable properties.
A lot of trees also went down. Some VRA extension poles and wires have been pulled down causing the blackout. It can be confirmed that the entire Bole District is still in darkness at the time of filing this report.
Confirming the incident in an interview with the Districts Chief Executive, Madam Alele Veronica Heming disclosed that the extent of damage caused is huge.
She mentioned that the people are in terrible need of support and are gripped with fear since it was the first time the district was experiencing such a thing.
Madam Veronica emphasized that even though the NADMO officers are doing their part to support the people whose properties are damage in the districts, she also appeal to the individuals, Non-Government Organization to come to their aid.
The DCE advised the people to stop cutting downs of trees and unnecessary pollutions that will exposed the district and others to the weather.
