Street/flash flooding and gusty winds (55km/hr) can also occur in areas that experience heavy
downpour. Citizens are advised to remain alert and vigilant and to be alert to any electrical
discharges from thundercloud activity.


All first responder agencies have been placed on alert to render assistance to those in need. The
ODPM reminds all citizens that if they have been adversely affected, they must contact their
municipal corporation or 800 6376.


Consequently, we continue to underscore the following:-
