Durban floods: Be vigilant in KZN

With the Durban floods seeming relentless, many have taken to social media to support those who have been affected. The flooding has caused detrimental landslides, leaving many people homeless. According to News24 at least 32 have been declared dead as a result.

People have been warned not to travel at all today to avoid the risk of danger. The M13 to Ntshongweni has been blocked off by fallen rocks as a result of the torrential downpour.

 

The floods have destroyed many homes, especially those built on hills, as these have been swept away as a result of mudslides. Roads in Southport have been destroyed as well.

 

In Amanzimtoti a house collapsed from the mudslides.

Beaches across Durban have nearly been completely destroyed by the torrential rains.

The following rainfall has been measured across the country by the South African Weather Service, which has also issued a flood warning for the coast to the east of Cape St Francis and former Transkei areas.

Facebook has activated its Crisis Response feature, which means donations can be made from anywhere in the world. The feature provides updates on the Durban floods as well as gives an option to donate. If you are looking to donate, follow the Facebook Crisis Response link here.
