Heavy rainfalls and gale-force winds are expected to settle in today as another cold front descends on the province.

“Weather services have told us heavy rainfalls will start late tomorrow morning,” disaster management spokesman Johan Minnie said.

The SA Weather Service warned yesterday of very cold and wet conditions as well as rough seas with huge waves.

It is expected the blustery conditions will last till Monday.

“There will be light and heavy rain, with breaks in between, but from tomorrow it will be more or less continuous until Monday,” said weather forecaster Nick Koegelenberg.

Minnie said that flooding had hit the hardest in six areas, including Wallacedene, Lotus Park, and Kosovo settlements.

Homeless People’s Crisis Committee project manager Des Ross said flooding in the southern suburbs had hit areas including Jimsebos in Philippi and Datjie in Diep River.
