Johannesburg Emergency Services say they remain on high alert following the torrential rains which battered the City over the weekend.

On Friday, more than 300 Nancefield hostel residents in Soweto were displaced following flash floods. Several other areas across Gauteng were also severely affected by the heavy rain.

Johannesburg EMS spokesperson Robert Mulaudzi says, “No major incidents were reported throughout our emergency call centre overnight in the city of Johannesburg due to the rainfall which we have been receiving. We still continue to urge our motorists out there to be cautious when they drive and also our residents in low lying areas to monitor young kids to make sure they stay away from river streams.”
