The City of Cape Town warns drivers to be careful on roads in the southern suburbs of the city, as more rain is expected later today, Thursday 14.

Cape Town Traffic Services spokesperson, Richard Coleman says flooded roads were reported in most of the suburbs.

“Motorists are urged to remain cautious by observing the speed limit, maintaining a good following distance and ensuring that their headlights are on,” he says.

Disaster Risk Management spokesperson, Charlotte Powell confirmed that no disastrous incidents have been reported in the southern suburbs at this stage.

According to her, informal settlements in the Cape Flats and townships were badly affected including BM Section, Green Point, Town Two and Taiwan in Khayelitsha and Masicindane informal settlement in Strandfontein.

Powell says roofs were blown off in Asanda Village in Strand and a few roads were flooded across the metropole.

She says Disaster Risk Management staff is busy with assessments and roadways are being cleared by the roads and storm water department.
