Johannesburg was hit by massive flash floods on Wednesday. Hundreds of people were left stranded on highways as some roads were immensely flooded.
One Joburg woman wept as her car was washed away. In the video she is screaming and crying as she haplessly watches on as the car is driven off by the floods.
The people standing next to her are heard asking if there is someone in the car.

In other areas Joburgers helped each other to get out of their cars and on to the safety of the flood banks on the highways.
