Several areas in Cape Town have flooded after heavy rainfall on Thursday, May 20.

Houses and roads in Gugulethu, Macassar Village and Philippi East were affected and power outages were reported in Milnerton and Noordhoek, the City of Cape Town’s Disaster Risk Management Centre said.

This comes after the South African Weather Service issued a yellow level 2 warning for rain resulting in localised flooding over the Cape Metropole, western parts of both the Cape Winelands and Overberg Districts on Thursday into Friday.

The City of Cape Town said that any flooding emergencies should be reported to the City’s Public Emergency Communication Centre by dialing 021 480 7700 from a cellphone or 107 from a landline.
