Officials at Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo are still assessing the damages following yesterday's flash floods.
Several homes were destroyed and families dispaced after strong winds and rain caused havoc in the area.
The Meiringspoort Pass has since been reopened to traffic after being flooded while the Swartberg Pass remains closed.
Municipality has activated its joint Operations Centre to provide relief to those affected by the flooding.
Disaster management head, Adel Supra-Vertue, says they remain on high alert as rain continues to fall: "We had a cloud burst that caused some floods.
Some of the roofs in town as well as outside of town got some wind damage as well as trees that fell into houses.
As you can see at the back of me the fire station also had some damages with the roof blown off.
We have some damages in Meiringspoort as well but our majority concern is our area in Bonglethu which was hit hard with the wind and rain."
