A rainstorm moving from the north-west last Thursday afternoon shook Ho and its environs leaving in its trail ripped roofs and uprooted trees.
The accompanying rainfall was varied; heavier in town than the peripheries.
Mr Stephen Nyavor, Municipal Meteorological Officer, put recorded rainfall figure at their station at 1.9 millilitres.
Mr Henry Ford Kamel, Volta Region Minister toured some affected areas on Friday morning to assure victims of support of the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO).
The Public Relations Officer of the Volta Regional Coordinating Council (VRCC), Mr Richard Ameyedewo told the media that Mr Kamel visited the Residency, where parts of the roof of a guest accommodation complex were destroyed.
He said the Minister tasked the appropriate government bodies to provide estimates for some repairs while efforts were made to rehabilitate the whole building.
He said at the E.P JSS A, B and C at Kpodzi, the Minister asked the staff not to use an old dilapidated building, which also had its roofs ripped off, but move into a new classroom complex, on return from holidays.
The squall also affected the Teachers Resource Centre, also at Kpodzi and a billboard belonging to DDP advertising agency.
