Captain Malcolm Pojie told Independent Online that the Kaaimans Pass was still block obstructed by rock falls and heavy mudslides. Motorists have been advised to use the R62 via the Langkloof pass.

In George a man was reported to have drowned while another man went missing in Riversdale on Thursday night as a result of the floods.

People that are cut off in areas are receiving food by helicopters with the police remaining vigilant. Pojie said that the 85 people out of 285 people who were rescued still were able to return home. The amount of houses flooded in the Heidelberg area amounted up to 173.

Pojie said he believes the flood has past and that George currently is experiencing a bit of sunshine.
