CAPE TOWN - Relief aid has been provided to nearly 12,000 households across Cape Town.
Heavy rains lashed the province over the last few days.
The City's Disaster Risk Management's Wilfred Solomons Johannes says several low-lying communities are experiencing high levels of discomfort due to stagnant water between informal settlement structures.
He says while there's been no need for evacuations authorities remain on high alert.
"Due to the three days of widespread precipitation that made landfall, informal settlements in low lying and flood line areas are experiencing discomfort. These include Delft, Philippi, Khayelitsha, Strand, Sir Lowry's Pass and Langa."
