Director-General for National Disaster Management Organisation, Eric Nana Agyemang-Prempeh, has disclosed that some major parts of the country are prone to earthquakes.

He said in 1939, a major earthquake happened in Ghana which claimed lives with Adabraka through to Weija and MacCarthy Hills the most affected areas in Ghana.

The impact, he said, was not serious because there were no high buildings and development in the country but if it should happen today, the impact will be huge.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show Thursday, Mr Agyemang-Prempeh said there is a line known as the fourth zone which has major assets on the earth.

“We have so many countries in Africa that are not under the earthquake line but Ghana has so many cities on the line. Our major assets are seen on that line. Some of the areas are; Peduase Lodge, Airport, Burma Camp, Jubilee House, Ministries, Department and Agencies, Kokomlemle are all on the line. The line is from Ho, through to Accra, MaCarthy Hill, and Nyanynu then straight to the sea,” he said.
