A strong wind which accompanied a downpour in the Volta regional capital of Ho, on Monday afternoon has colapsed some transmission masts belonging to some radio stations and a telecom company in the area.
The rainstorm which started at about 4:00pm and lasted barely 40 minutes brought down the masts of Ho based KuulFM and ToshFM as well that of telecom operator Glo Ghana, which were all situated on top of the Galenkui mountain near Ho.
The situation has compelled the stations to go off air for the mean time, while they assess the extent of damage. An electricity transmission pole located within the same vicinity was also affected, leading to cut in power supply to some parts of the municipality.
Checks in other parts of the municipality revealed that, the rainstorm also ripped of portions of the roofings of the Vodafone Ghana regional office, while some bill boards have also been pulled down. No casualty was however reported in the disaster.
