The long awaited winter rains have finally arrived in Cape Town.
But while some are celebrating, those in informal settlements and low-lying areas are faced with the aftermath -flooding.
The City of Cape Town's Disaster Risk Management Centre said multiple roads were flooded across the city.
Cape Town Mayor Patricia de Lille says teams have been sent out to assist in affected areas.
