2000 people were affected by the floods in some informal settlements in the Western Cape, after heavy rainfalls on Thursday night.
The affected victims were moved into community halls or lodged with friends, this is according to a weekend paper.
According to the South African weather bureau isolated heavy rainfalls were possible over greater Cape Town parts.
The areas which are considered at high risk are Kosovo in Philippi, Gugulethu and Khayelitsha.
Meanwhile the city’s disaster management assessed the damage and went to the aid of rained out families, providing them with warm meals and blankets.
