Rescue workers have warned that Johannesburg can expect more heavy rains following the flooding that caused chaos in the City last night.
Motorists and shack dwellers had to be rescued as floodwaters overcomed their vehicles and shacks.
Johannesburg emergency services spokesperson Nana Radebe says 97 shacks were flooded at the Protea South informal settlement.
Passengers also had to be rescued from the roofs of cars that had been swept away in the flood water in Commando Road, Florida last night.
