20 People Dead, Scores Missing In KwaZulu Natal Floods

20 People Dead, Scores Missing In KwaZulu Natal Floods

At least twenty (20) people are reported dead and scores are missing following heavy rains and flooding in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal Province.

Speaking to eNCA on Tuesday morning, Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs spokesperson, Nonala Ndlovu, said eThekwini Disaster Management teams have been attending to scenes across the city.

She said police have not yet reached some areas and therefore the number of casualties may rise as the day progresses.

Ndlovu urged residents to stay indoors and avoid crossing flooded bridges if they need to leave home. She said:

The are definitely no-go areas. Don’t try to navigate through any heavy amounts of water.

If you are in danger, please get to safety and contact your local area leadership.

The South African Weather Service (SAWS) has forecasted more rainfall for most of Tuesday. SAWS said in a notice:

A Cut-Off Low-pressure system is situated over the eastern parts of the country and a surface low is to the east along the KZN coast, advecting low-level moisture and resulting in scattered showers and rain over the south-eastern parts of KZN tomorrow (today).

Significant amounts of rainfall have already been received in most places along the south coast and more rain is still expected to fall tonight and tomorrow.

The soil is already saturated and some drainage systems are already full, so widespread flooding can be expected to continue tonight into tomorrow over the south-eastern parts of KZN.

As Africans we do not celebrate tragedy that befall even our enemies, no matter how iniquitous their behaviour. Let us preserve Hunhu/Ubuntu.

I personally commiserate with the bereaved families and the affected in Kwazulu-Natal. May the dear Lord heal their wounds
