Hundreds displaced amid renewed flooding in South Africa

IN BAD SHAPE—Infrastructure

Hundreds of residents have been evacuated in South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province, amid a high alert over renewed flooding.

The province experienced deadly floods last month.

Heavy rains have been pounding and the local administration is on high alert to prevent any loss of life.

According to News24 website reports, local Mayor Mxolisi Kaunda says no comprehensive report has been shared on the impact of the latest heavy rains but residents have reported destruction of infrastructure.

A level 10 warning, the highest and most severe level, issued by the weather service remains in place.

Houses were swept and roads destroyed during the April floods. According to local media, most of those affected by that flooding have certainly not recovered.—BBC
