Some of the affected areas include Dansoman, Lapaz, Achimota, Gbawe, Weija, Madina, Nsawam, Koforidua, Swedru among others.

Mawuli Zogbenu, a resident of Weija said he experienced the earth three times.

“It started at exactly 10:48 pm. Initially, we thought because it was a rainy season, it was normal. But it happened again in a few seconds. And it happened the third time. As I speak with you a lot of families are out of their rooms trying to look for safety places,” he said in an interview.
