Cleanup Operations Commence in Cape Town Following Severe Flooding

In the aftermath of heavy rainfall in Cape Town, cleanup operations have been initiated, but the situation remains dire.

Tragically, eight lives have been lost, with four children falling victim to electrocution in separate incidents.

Numerous homes, particularly in impoverished informal settlements, have been submerged in floodwaters, leaving families scrambling to salvage their possessions.

In the outskirts of the city, many homes in townships rely on makeshift and hazardous electricity connections, illegally tapping into existing power lines to meet their energy needs.

The Cape Town region, located in the Western Cape province, is prone to storms and cold fronts, with a recent June cold front causing an estimated $50 million in damages to the local agricultural sector, as reported by authorities.
