Agri Western Cape cautiously welcomes heavy rainfalls
Western Cape roads had to be closed due to flooding on Friday following sudden heavy rains.
CAPE TOWN - Agri Western Cape has tentatively welcomed the recent downpours across the province, but is waiting on a final report on whether the storm did more harm than good.
However, in an about-turn, Western Cape roads had to be closed due to flooding on Friday following sudden heavy rains.
Gale force winds also toppled trees and blew the roofs off some houses in the Mother City.
Agri Western Cape's Carl Opperman says a full report on the storm's effects on farming will be released tomorrow afternoon.
"Certain areas where we had devastating drought we had between eight and 13 mm, there was also some severe winds but we don't know if there was any damage from that."
