Weather Warning: 16 - 17 December 2022

HEADS-UP: More thunderstorms and rain are expected over the weekend.

An Orange Level 6 warning for severe thunderstorms resulting in flooding and large amounts of small hail are expected over Overstrand and other parts of the Western Cape on Friday and Saturday (16 - 17 December 2022).

Residents are advised to watch out for localised flooding and avoid low-lying areas and bridges. If possible, stay indoors and keep away from metal objects. Do not seek shelter under trees or tall objects.

For those travelling - drive carefully and leave plenty of time. Please drive carefully in the rain and remember, 'Wipers on, lights on'.
