City, NGOs step in following heavy rainfall in CT
An official says help has been deployed to parts of Khayelitsha following heavy rainfall overnight.
CAPE TOWN - Cape Town's Disaster Risk Management Centre says help has been deployed to parts of Khayelitsha following heavy rainfall overnight.
The centre says officials were called out to several informal settlements across the city to assess reports of flooding.
Disaster management's Charlotte Powell says two areas have been singled out.
"There've been reports of flooding in Khayelitsha's CT and UT sections. Our NGO partners are assisting those communities with meals and blankets."
Earlier this week, around 1,200 structures were damaged in the Cape metro during the stormy weather.
