Ekurhuleni emergency services are on high alert for more possible flooding after rescuing 15 people from a taxi trapped underwater due to the heavy rain.

There were flash floods in Germiston on Thursday night and emergency services found two cars stuck in a pool of water on a public road.

EMS officials managed to rescue everyone in the vehicle and the taxi on time.
