Cold front expected to hit parts of WC this weekend
Persistent rainfall earlier this week resulted in about 2,500 people being affected by flooding.
CAPE TOWN - Residents should brace themselves for more chilly days as a cold front is expected to hit parts of the Western Cape this weekend.
Persistent rainfall earlier this week resulted in about 2,500 people being affected by flooding across the Cape Peninsula.
Forecaster Mbali Maliage says, "We are expecting another cold front to come through the weekend from Saturday to Sunday. We are expecting a significant amount of rainfall for the area, possibly even the south-western parts of the Western Cape."
At the same time, some Hout Bay residents fear a second cold front this weekend may lead to more flooding in their community.
About 100 people in the area have been affected by flooding.
The Hout Bay Civic Association's Roscoe Jacobs says the City of Cape Town has assisted the community.
"Various sectors of the community were flooded as a result of the rainfall in the area, but it's been cleared and drains have been unblocked."
