The disaster follows a similar event in the Volta region where over 1000 persons got displaced due to what troubled residents say might be the menace of sand mining activities. So far, the National disaster management organization (NADMO) is yet to come to the aid of these affected communities as media reports suggest it stays as the most tortuous sea disaster ever recorded in the year 2017. The sea water washed away fishing nets and other household items.
