eNCA reports that at least six people died and many properties were affected, including a number of hospitals and schools. The death toll is expected to rise as many people are still missing. Motorists in the province have been warned to drive cautiously as some roads are still flooded while others are filled with debris.
All roads in the southern parts of Durban have been closed. The disaster management call centre is continuing to deal with high call volumes and urges residents to use the number only in emergencies.
