The City’s Disaster Risk Management Centre (DRMC) received reports of flooding in informal settlements in Gugulethu, Wynberg, Valhalla Park, Philippi and Khayelitsha, Macassar, Sir Lowry’s Pass Village and Lwandle.
“On the roads, the City’s Traffic Service recorded 13 motor vehicle accidents by mid-morning on Monday 28 June 2021, due to the heavy downpours, as well as roads flooded in a number of areas including Bellville, Ottery, Athlone, Woodstock, Plattekloof and Panorama.”- CoCT.
