The Tshwane Emergency Services reports that several roads around Centurion in Pretoria are flooded. One vehicle attempted to cross a flooded road near Supersport Cricket Stadium in Centurion but failed to get across.

The occupants managed to escape unharmed. Tshwane Emergency Services spokesperson Charles Mabaso says the torrential rains have also led to the closure of some low-lying bridges in the City with some households requiring water to be channeled out of their houses.
