Roofs blown off, trees uprooted, roads closed as storm hits Cape Town. A strong cold front is lashing Cape Town and other parts of the Western Cape, after the SA Weather Service issued a severe weather warning for flash flooding, hail, and gale force winds.

The City of Cape Town urged residents to keep calm and do everything possible to keep safe as the storm approaches.

The city assured Capetonians that the Disaster Risk Management was on “high alert” and prepared to help whoever may be affected by the storm should a need arises.

This comes as the South African Weather Service warned of a cold front – which the city says comes with “heavy rainfall, strong winds, and waves between 9m and 12m along the coastal areas of the Cape Peninsula”
