Port Elizabeth's Third Avenue dip closed due to flooding

SEPTEMBER 2, 2015

Port Elizabeth's Third Avenue dip, in Newton Park, has been closed due to flooding. Drivers are advised to use alternative routes. 

The flooding follows heavy rains that fell in the region over the past few days - and more light rains experienced today. 

However, Garth Sampson, spokesperson at SA Weather in the Eastern Cape, said on Wednesday morning, the wet weather "will clear gradually from the west later tomorrow".

Elsewhere, several people, including children, were evacuated from low-lying areas in George on Tuesday due to flooding following the heavy rains experienced in the Southern Cape.
