A heavy  downpour in the  Ho, Monday afternoon has left  parts of the regional capital flooded, with dozens of  shops and homes inundated with flood waters. 
The rain which started at about 5:00 PM and lasted for almost  an hour, left  major storm drains and culverts overflowing with running  waters. 
This, also resulted in the flooding of  sections of  some  roads within the capital, such as the Dome-Barracks, YMCA-Civic Centre-Asanyame, OLA-Market and Poly  roads among others. 
Shops and homes along these stretches at Bankoe, Anlokordzi, Poly, Dome and other places also had their fair share of the flood.

A visit to some of the suburbs  after the downpour, saw affected residents scooping water and sand debris out of their shops and homes. 
“These flood is more than what we experienced last year,” an affected hairdresser on the Poly road, exclaimed.  
A lot of debris have also piled up at mouth of some culverts, with some scattered on the street at the time of this report. No casualty was however reported.
