No casualty was recorded at the facility.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Meteorological Agency (GMet), has cautioned persons living in and around flood-prone areas to seek asylum elsewhere because the country will be experiencing heavy rains in the coming days.

According to the agency, areas to be heavily affected include coastal parts of the Central, Greater Accra, Western and the Ashanti regions.
