Johannesburg is experiencing heavy rain and flooding in certain places, putting a damper on everyone's weekend plans. reported 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.

One brave Range Rover owner was met with raging water and figured: why not? They pushed through the angry rapids but were eventually forced to abandon both their ride and their dignity.
