Rain across the country on Thursday

Screen-Shot-001

The South African Weather Service issued a yellow level 2 warning for disruptive rainfall caused by slow moving thunderstorms, which could lead to flooding of susceptible formal/informal settlements or roads and low-lying areas, with bridges and major roads affected.

It could result in increased travel times and difficult driving conditions on dirt roads, and localised damage to mud-based/makeshift houses/structures. This is expected in places over the southern parts of Limpopo, the northern and eastern parts of Gauteng, as well as Highveld of Mpumalanga.
