The Glen Shopping Centre evacuated as ceiling collapses

Heavy rains led to flooding in the South of Johannesburg on Thursday, 21 November with the ceiling collapsing at The Glen shopping centre.
Johannesburg Emergency Medical Services (EMS) spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi said: “We did receive some reports of flash floods in the South and also (the) roof collapse, but we didn’t receive any injuries that were reported.”
The Glen was evacuated when the incident occurred and the roof will require major repairs.
Clean-up operations carried on late into the evening, with many owners and managers back at first light on Friday morning, 22 November.
