Tonight with Lester Podcast

Floods in Cape Town


Guest : Charlotte Powell

Last night, winter delivered the first major cold front to Cape Town.
It brought much-needed rain, but just like every year, people living in informal
settlements in wetlands and low-lying areas experience the misery of flooded homes.
The City says all emergency services are on high alert, but no evacuations have been
necessary yet.
Another cold front is expected tonight - will this change the situation?
Joining me is Charlotte Powell, the Disaster Risk Management spokesperson for the City
of Cape Town.
