Floods in South Africa: Torrential Rains Cause 30 Deaths And Traffic Chaos

 Severe downpour across KwaZulu-Natal has had tragic overnight consequences. The Durban floods have claimed the lives of 30 residents, including four who were caught in a house that collapsed. The rain has battered eThekwini and there was traffic chaos all across the municipality on Tuesday morning.

A severe weather warning remains in place for the region. The rain is set to continue late into Tuesday, heaping the misery onto local residents. As the SA Weather Service confirmed, more localized flooding is expected over the coastal areas of KZN as well as the adjacent interior.

Chatsworth, Malvern and Overport are some of the suburbs which are worst-affected by the devastating Durban floods. Of the 23 deaths confirmed by authorities, four of them – including an infant – were claimed in the same house-collapse during the worst of the weather.
