Heavy rains

■ Last weekend’s heavy rains flooded several parts of Hout Bay, including Atlantic Skipper Road in the harbour precinct. The City of Cape Town said earlier this week dam levels had again improved significantly, by 5.6% to 48.3% of storage capacity largely due to heavy rains. The City also revealed that average water consumption for the past week has reached a record low of 481 million litres a day.
