The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality has activated its Joint Operations Centre since 2pm this afternoon after more road closures were necessitated as a result of persistent rain since this morning.
The Newton Park Third Avenue Dip area, Carrington Road in Charlo, Seaview Road in the vicinity of Bushy Park and the Draaifontein/Tembani Road are currently closed. Water Road and Victoria Road in the Walmer area are currently being monitored and could be closed at any time.
Electricity outage: We lost electricity supply from the Bethelsdorp Main Sub-station affecting supply to Cleary Park, West End, Arcadia, Salsoneville and large sections of Bethelsdorp. Supply will be restored as soon as possible.
Motorists are warned to use extreme caution and adhere to safe following distances as road surfaces are slippery.
