JOHANNESBURG - The weather service is warning of more rain and flooding across Gauteng and neighbouring provinces this week after days of relentless downpours.

Large potholes have formed, traffic lights have been affected and slippery roads have caused fatal accidents.

The Johannesburg Roads Agency says it can only temporarily patch up the potholes and must wait for the sun to come out before proper repair work can be done.

The weather service's Venetia Phakula said, "Other parts of the country that will be affected by heavy rains include Mpumalanga, Limpopo, KwaZulu-Natal and the eastern parts of the North West. Maybe towards the end of the week the weather will start moderating."

Rescue crews had their hands full in Kliptown, Soweto, at the weekend after at least 30 families were displaced when their shacks were destroyed by the persistent downpours.

The families have been accommodated in a hall near the Freedom Square Informal Settlement.

Emergency services's Robert Mulaudzi said, "We received a warning from the weather services that we might experience more rain until Friday. We'll remain on alert monitoring rivers and streams in Johannesburg."

In Limpopo, search and rescue operations are expected to continue today for two people who went missing following heavy rains in the province while a third person's body has been recovered.

A 69-year-old woman and her 74-year-old husband, who were swimming in a covered pool in Bela Bela's Kariba Lodge, were washed away on Friday after parts of a local dam burst its banks and water flowed into the lodge. The man's body was later recovered.

At the same time, the police's Hangwani Mulaudzi says authorities are searching for another person who went missing in the Makhado region.

MOTORISTS WARNED OF FLOODS

Meanwhile, Weather South Africa on Sunday warned motorists of possible road flooding in places all over Gauteng.
