The victims included four people who died in a fire caused by lightning and one who was killed when a house collapsed.
A ferocious storm killed eight people as it pummelled South Africa's west coast on Wednesday, forcing the closure of Cape Town harbour, triggering flash floods and causing extensive damage, authorities said.
The Western Cape storm is expected to dump more than 50mm of rain in some areas and trigger waves of up to 12 metres.
The storm hit the Cape Peninsula early on Wednesday morning, which some have described as the "worst storm in living memory".
As many shared genuine pictures of the storm and its aftermath on social media, still others used the turmoil to circulate doctored videos.
Western Cape residents should brace themselves for snowfall following the strong winds and heavy rains that have gripped the province.
