Disaster teams in KwaZulu-Natal are assessing the effects of flooding that has left several roads closed and some homes damaged in KwaDukuza on the north coast, among other places.

The province has received more than 50 millimetres of rain in the last two days.

KwaDukuza spokesperson Sipho Mkhize says they’re expecting a full report from the disaster management teams.

“We have received incidents where there were flooding on the roads – some storm water going into people’s homes and so forth, however, our disaster management team has been on the ground in this regard and they have been able to provide necessary relief that was needed.”

Meanwhile, the Cape Town Weather Office has called on people to remain hydrated and to avoid the outdoors as the province experiences heatwave conditions.
