The South African Weather Service has warned of more heavy rain in the north-eastern part of KwaZulu-Natal, after already issuing a flood alert for the area Tuesday.

The area includes the port city of Richards Bay.

This follows steady rain in most parts of the province overnight.

Forecaster Stacey Colbert has the details on the weather updates in KZN.

“We are expecting 60% chance of showers in most of the province except the north eastern part of KZN which would include Richards bay where we expect eighty percent of showers. We have issued a warning for heavy rain over that area as well,” Colbert says.

“Tomorrow there’s only a 30% chance still over the north eastern part for KZN as well as the south coast and north coast for KZN tomorrow.”
