Some good falls recorded in the Nelson Mandela Bay's catchment areas

Although, Port Elizabeth only received 3mm overnight, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality's dams in the Baviaanskloof catchment area fared better.

"Joubertina received 10 mm and Kareedouw 20 mm," said Garth Sampson, Client Liaison Officer for the Eastern Cape at the South African Weather Service.

"This area feeds the Kouga and Churchill Dams. 

"Patensie was not so lucky and only received 3mm." 

Sampson said that as a result the Kouga Dam is at 48% of its capacity as of Thursday morning.

"No significant rain is expected within the next few days."
