Flooding has also been reported in a number of areas in Cape Town as a result of the heavy downpours.

Disaster Management officials have completed assessments in informal settlements in Khayelitsha, Strand, Gugulethu and Crossroads. Approximately 700 structures have been affected. Plastic sheeting to fix leaking roofs have been issued. No evacuations or emergency sheltering have been activated.”
