AVOID: R24 at Eastgate is flooded, use alternative routes

Motorists are urged to find alternative routes into parts of Bedfordview following flooding on the R24 at Eastgate Shopping Centre this morning.

The highway was reduced to one lane, causing massive delays for motorists.

With more rain expected to fall today, residents are asked to be caution when travelling.

Driving safely in wet weather conditions.

Earlier this week the South African Weather Service warned of heavy rainfall and possible flooding in parts of Gauteng.


How does the South African Weather Service categorise severe weather warnings:

Severe weather is an extreme meteorological event or phenomenon, which represents a real hazard to human life and property and has the potential to cause damage, serious social disruption, or loss of human life.

Special Weather Advisory: an alert raising awareness up to five days in advance to either expected large scale potential disruptive weather systems that could later lead to specific watches/warnings with time, or to less urgent alerts of uncommon conditions.

Severe Weather Watch:  an alert calling for preparedness to weather hazards that most likely will occur within one to three days and that could lead to disruptive and disastrous conditions.

Severe Weather Warning: an alert calling for reaction due to a very high certainty of a severe weather hazard that is already occurring or imminent within 24 hours and that could lead to disruptive and disastrous conditions.
