CAPE TOWN-- The South African Weather Service has issued a severe weather warning for Cape Town for Thursday and Friday and the city's Disaster Management Services have been placed on high alert in preparation for a harsh cold front expected to hit the Mother City on Thursday.
The South African Weather Service says very heavy downpours, rough seas and gale force winds of up to 70 kilometres per hour are expected to hit the country's second largest city.
Disaster Management Service spokesperson Charlotte Powell said here Wednesday that the city government was also bracing for possible flooding in some areas.
Due to heavy rain leading to flash flooding, areas could be affected with localised damage. The Disaster Management Centre will remain watchful during this period," she said.
"The City has put in place measures to try to mitigate the impact. Disaster response teams and engineering crews will be on standby to assist residents to deal with the consequences of these adverse weather conditions.
