New Year’s celebrations were dampened by heavy rains on Wednesday night which continued into the early hours of the morning causing flooding in many suburbs.
At least three cars were submerged in water and trees were uprooted by strong winds.
The police’s Dumisani Ndlazi said, “Just about before 12 o’clock there was heavy rain and Mitchell’s Street was full of water and cars have to stop [sic] for 30 minutes for the water to dry up.”
