Cape Town South Africa under water as storm hits, areas evacuated

Cape Town was left in devastation after the cold front made landfall on Friday, 21 June 2019. Residents were warned yesterday gale force winds reaching 90km/h were expected on Friday afternoon.

Several areas around Cape Town were evacuated. In addition, Charlotte Powell, the spokesperson for the City’s Risk Management Centre, said power outages were reported in Milnerton, Plumstead and Sybrand Park. In Strand, Woodstock, and Claremont, roofs were blown off houses and fallen trees are blocking roads.

As reported by Times Live, approximately 1 000 people were evacuated from a building in Belville. Residents are urged to avoid flooded areas and seek alternative routes instead. Don’t attempt to cross flooded roads as you will not be able to assess the amount of debris and damage, which may be hidden underwater.

Trees have been uprooted in Claremont, Southfield, and Observatory. Five uprooted trees are blocking roadways on Woodbridge Road in Kenwyn, and the Franschhoek Pass is closed due to a rock fall, Homes and streets in Manenberg, Gugulethu, and Khayelitsha were hit the hardest and traffic along most major routes were delayed.
