Lephalale - Mpumalanga municipalities were warned on Monday of possible flooding as rainfall continued in the province.
“(We) have instructed all municipalities to activate their local joint operations committees, be on full alert and on standby,” the co-operative government department said.
“The rains can result in an increase of dam and river levels, thus making small streams and rivers very dangerous.”
People in low-lying areas were advised to move away from river banks and to avoid crossing full rivers and flooded bridges.
The department and the water affairs department were monitoring river flows and dam levels, which were currently stable.
“All road users are urged to be extremely cautious... as they (roads) will be wet and rocks might have fallen in some areas,” the department said.
“Motorists are also urged not to drive through flowing water. All disaster role players and stakeholders are on high alert and standby.”
