Rain caused havoc all over Gauteng.

01 February 2014, 19:21

On 30 & 31 January Krugersdorp and various parts of the West Rand felt the fool force of Mother Nature with flash floods closing schools and damaging property. Monument High School had to send their learner’s home after the Monument dam flooded its banks causing huge damage to the school.

Shop owners at the President Square had their hands full as the canal behind President Square came down with force pushing water up as far as Jack’s Paint at President. Some home owners in Krugersdorp-West are left with huge damages after the canal also could not handle the huge mass of water after heavy rain came down during the night.

Destroying away everything in its path. Other parts on the West Rand saw roads been flooded due to storm drains been blocked. Cars that got stuck in some parts that needed to be rescued. Krugersdorp saw 129mm rain fall in a 15 hour period.

We as the Municipality Watchdog would like to request the Municipalities to assist residents were possible and to assist the damage to infrastructure to and the cost involve repairing this damages, we would also see the Gauteng Provincial Government and the MIG (Municipal Infrastructure Grant) to assist Municipalities with the funding to get damaged infrastructure repaired.

Please be causes as more rain is expected over Gauteng and a Flood Warning issued by the South African Weather Service according to media reports.
