Several roads in the Southern Cape have been flooded and motorists were urged to be cautious. Local Government, Environmental Affairs, and Development Planning MEC Anton Bredell says homes were also evacuated in affected areas and rescue teams were deployed to the area to assist. The evacuees are being housed at the Struisbaai Caravan Park and Struisbaai Community Hall. At the same time, the South African Weather Service says significant rainfall can be expected over the City of Cape Town, Cape Winelands districts as well as Hessequa municipality from last night and intermittently throughout today.
Winter storms have made landfall in the Southern Cape and have led to severe localised flooding in some communities in Struisbaai, Cape Agulhas, and surrounding areas.
