Flash flood warning for AFCON

Johannesburg - Fans attending the African Cup of Nations match between Bafana Bafana and Cape Verde on Saturday have been warned not to bring umbrellas to the stadium.

They should instead opt for raincoats to prepare for severe weather conditions, Gauteng police said on Friday.

"A warning has been issued by the SA Weather Service that there might be flash floods for Johannesburg as from today [Friday]," Lt-Col Lungelo Dlamini said.

He said police, other law enforcement agencies, and disaster management centres would be on alert as the weather conditions might have an impact on security measures for the event.
