JOHANNESBURG - Heavy, persistent rains are expected in Gauteng, Mpumalanga, and Limpopo stoking fears of flooding in low-lying areas.
When the clouds turn grey, people living in areas like Villa Liza in Boksburg start to panic.
Residents say it feels like torture when it rains.
Another community that suffers is in Alexandra township, along the Jukskei River.
If there's a flood, it will sweep away their homes.
The community is now dumping rubbish in an effort to form a barrier to protect their shacks.
