Five people have been killed by a storm in Cape Town that South African media dubbed “the mother of all storms”. Schools and universities have had to shut, roofs were blown off and shelters have been opened for those left destitute.

The storm comes at the end of the region’s worst drought in a century. The BBC’s Mo Allie in Cape Town reports that before the storm, there had been several interfaith prayer group meetings praying for rain.

Our sourcr adds that the storm was anticipated and warnings have been made by the local authorities for the last week.
