Residents of Akuapem South and North Municipalities are currently living in fear over the Monday’s earth tremors.
According to them, earth tremors normally occur to people who live in mountainous areas.
The Principal Seismologist at the Ghana Geological Survey Authority (GGSA), Nicholas Opoku has warned residents of Accra to be prepared for more earth tremors in the future and thinks they can be part of it in future.
According to the residents “This is not a new thing. They all spent the night outside one day because of earth tremors they have been experiencing this from time to time…even the most recent ones were in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Where all the residents of Adukrom spend the night at one big park because of information that earth tremors are coming”.
They also called on the government to put in the necessary solutions so that they will not be part of it one day.
Parts of Accra on Monday, December 12, were hit by two earth tremors. The first tremor was recorded a little after 10: 00 am while the second was recorded around 11: 30 am.
Some of the places that recorded the tremor included Adabraka, Gbawe, McCarthy hill and Mallam
