Strong gale force winds and heavy rain continues to lash the Cape Peninsula, causing havoc in several areas.

Emergency services had their hands full yesterday when seven people were injured when the roof of Pick n Pay Hypermarket in Ottery caved in.

Reports have also been flooding in of trees falling and roofs being blowen off.

Meanwhile four people were burnt to death in several shack fires in the Cape. Firefighters were called out to at least five shack fires in various informal settlements.

Authorities believe the fires were caused by the bad weather. Cape Town Disaster Management Teams are still busy assessing the damage
