Briefly.co.za learned that low lying areas have been affected the worst as strong winds and heavy rains continue to flood the area. Riverbanks risk bursting with the amount of rain that is falling.

One of the reasons the flooding is so bad is that the concrete buildings and roads in the area do not allow the water to drain into the ground and instead runs in large streams through the city.

Mzansi has reacted to the flooding on Twitter, posting their experiences as the rains cause havoc.
