The Buffalo City Metro is on high alert following continuous heavy rains across the region.

The Metro said in a statement on Saturday that it had activated its Disaster Management teams - including Fire Services, Traffic Services, and Law Enforcement.

Electricity and Water standby teams are also attending to reported faults.

The Municipality said it is attending to various flooding incidents that have impacted homes, particularly informal settlements, and various flooded roads.

Ward Councillors will provide disaster relief packages and alternative accommodation to the families whose homes have been affected.

Those residing in low-lying areas should seek alternative accommodation and motorists must avoid flooded roads, bridges, and drains.
