More than 38 000 hit by Cape floods

South Africa
More than 38 000 people from 49 areas in greater Cape Town are affected by the flooding, says Disaster Management, which with its NGO partners is providing meals for 18 000 of those worst affected.

Flooding was also reported on the West Coast and in the Overberg.

The rapid growth in informal settlements in the past three years, from 178 to 226, may be at the heart of the problem, Disaster Management spokesperson Johan Minnie said on Sunday.
