Alert issued for heavy rains in South Africa

Alert issued for heavy rains in South Africa

Johannesburg, South Africa, Feb 9 (Prensa Latina) The Emergency Services (SEM) of Johannesburg, in the central South African province of Gauteng, as well as those of the southern Eastern Cape, issued alerts due to heavy rains affecting these demarcations.

The ‘disruptive’ rains will continue in many parts of the country during the next few days, according to specialists of the National Meteorological Service.

In this regard, Johannesburg SEM spokesman Robert Mulaudzi said that no major incidents were reported overnight across the city due to the abnormal weather conditions.

However, he added, “emergency services still remain on high alert monitoring the seven regions of the city so that we can respond to all eventualities that may occur”.

On the other hand, the Eastern Cape Ministry of Transport called on motorists to maintain reinforced road safety measures due to the rains that have been affecting many parts of the province since the previous day.

The ministerial spokesman, Unathi Binqose, assured that his department is trying to avoid a repetition of what happened yesterday, Wednesday, when the pavement conditions gave way two multiple crashes in the province, involving 17 vehicles.

The alerts of emergency services include people living in low-lying areas, mainly where there are informal settlements or poor sectors of society, who are especially vulnerable to adverse weather conditions.
