Minister for Communications and Digitalisation, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful launched a flood app dubbed “My Flood Risk Accra App”.
Mrs. Ursula stressed that, “The flood app allows you to monitor the water-levels in your neighborhood or Municipality to inform the possibilities of flooding. It also has multiple flood maps (locations) different return periods and literacy information on the preparedness, prevention, response and recovery measures”.
