Appeal to residents to be safe during the heavy rainfall

The George Municipal Area has received good rains since last night and experienced heavy downpours early this morning, causing our stormwater systems to be under severe pressure.
We are receiving numerous complaints due to flooding and our staff is in the field attending to them.
Our emergency personnel appeal to people living in low-lying areas to take special care during this time. They should monitor the rising water levels and evacuate to a safer place or higher area when the water level rises.
Also, do not cross low-lying bridges or flooded roads or bridges but rather use alternative routes.
For emergencies please contact any of the following numbers:
All after-hours emergencies: 044 801 6300
Cellphone 1: 074 6218737
Cellphone2: 074 423 8635
We thank the residents for their cooperation and patience during this situation.
