Yesterday Parts of Kwazulu Natal was hit with a level ten weather warning. This is the highest adverse weather warning that could be given. Meaning that there was a very serious danger to life. In the following hours parts of Kwazulu Natal was battered by rain and many forms of infrastructure was destroyed. Now a day later let's see how bad things really were in KZN yesterday by looking at these seventeen pictures.
Surfside and M4 :
As we can see above a large part of a Road was completely destroyed. While a van fell into another destroyed road. In other images we see large amounts of debris and sand that has entered into people's homes. Making the situation seem unlivable.
Location Unknown :
In these images we see the true extent that the flooding had on the roads, enveloping them and making it dangerous for any driver to navigate.
Suzuki Dealership Ballito :
Sadly many businesses was not safe either. Here we see the Suzuki Dealership in Ballito thats been flooded. While we don't know if any of the vehicles were damaged, I do believe that it's going to to cost a lot of money to fix the floors and furniture.
South Beach Road :
Many homes have also been damaged, as we can see above a white building falling into a trench. Hopefully the Government will try to aid these people and get them back on their feet as soon as possible.
Images by Times Live :
Other larger homes and flats also saw major damage as the floods washed away parts of their foundation. The owners of these buildings will be losing a lot of money if they cannot be repaired.
Images by RUSA (Reaction Unit South Africa) :
Above we see a damaged vehicle stuck in flood waters. Unfortunately a lot vehicles will be damaged by the storm and have to be abandoned or written off. Leaving many people losing the money they spent on them.
Unfortunately this is the second instance of flooding like this in the past two months and it's left many people in danger or even dead. Which is why I would like to urge the South African Government to put better systems in place to protect people.
