What's with the weather? Meteorologist Rian Smit explains exactly what's causing the icy conditions we're experiencing around the country.WATCH

Johannesburg - Rainy weather conditions in Cape Town have affected more than 20 000 people and over 5 000 households, Mayor Patricia de Lille said on Monday.

She said the city's disaster risk management (DRM) team had handed out 15 792 blankets, just over 20 000 meals, 177 baby packs and 712 flood kits.

A flood and storms planning task team had given residents practical tips on how to raise floor levels, divert flood waters and to reduce health hazards associated with stagnant water.

"Despite these measures, we know that many people are still affected by the flooding and DRM will continue working in affected areas to ensure that our assistance reaches the city’s most vulnerable residents," De Lille said.
