JOHANNESBURG – Gauteng residents are being warned of possible flooding due to heavy rainfall on Thursday.
This is expected to result in heavy traffic delays, with Eskom announcing stage 2 load shedding.
The Johannesburg Metro Police Department’s Wayne Minnaar says that motorists must drive with caution: “Where there are roads that have been flooded, do not take a chance to try and drive on those roads because a little bit of water can sweep people off the road.”
Meanwhile, in Limpopo, there are already reports of flooding.
SA Weather Services forecaster Vanetia Phakula said: “Thoyondou in Limpopo and Phalaborwa are flooding and they are still expecting more rain.”
