Flood

SA weather service says more rain is coming and floods will continue

The South African Weather Service has reported a level 10 warning regarding heavy rains that are still to come in the coastal areas of KZN.

This is classified as the highest level of warning and should not be taken lightly. This is a flood that will hit on the already flooded area causing more damage than already done.

In April, floods destroyed homes, took lives of over 400 people and displaced thousands. Till date, there are people still missing from what transpired whilst more bodies are being found.

The South African Weather service said more than 200 millimetres of rain is still expected to pour on the coastal areas.

This warning issued is a red, level 10 warning. This means more roads, bridges , houses and infrastructure will be torn apart which can pose a threat to many lives.

The rainfal is caused by the cut off low system.This has also affected the productivity of Eskom as the loadshedding has been escalated to level 04 since Saturday.

Motorists have been urged to be more careful when travelling as traffic lights and streetlights won't be functional.

The low lying areas of Gauteng are not spared from this warning as they are likely to receive the same treatment from the weather.
