Emergency teams on high alert as bad weather persists

Written by on 11 November, 2019

MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs in the province, Sipho Hlomuka, says he has placed disaster management teams on high alert following reports received from the South African Weather Service which indicate a strong possibility of severe thunderstorms that could lead to localised flooding in large parts of the province.

This warning comes as four people were recently killed by lightning in Mkhuze in northern part of the province.

Hlomuka has urged residents across the province to be cautious as bad weather still poses a serious danger to communities.

He adds that disaster management teams are on standby as rain continues to fall in some parts of the province and will be monitoring the situation especially in areas that are prone to flooding.
