Following the weekend’s wet weather and continued conditions, KZN MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA), Sipho Hlomuka, placed disaster management teams on high alert across the province.
This decision follows a Level 2 warning for disruptive rain issued by the South African Weather Service (SAWS).
According to the weather service, disruptive rainfall is expected to lead to localised flooding of susceptible formal and informal settlements, low lying areas and bridges over the northern parts of KwaZulu-Natal on Monday, 11 April 2022.
The towns expected to be impacted by the bad weather are as follows:
- Abaqulusi (Vryheid)
- eMadlangeni (Utrecht)
- Big Five Hlabisa
- Greater Kokstad
- Mooi River
- Okhahlamba (Bergville)
With severe weather conditions expected to continue, KZN COGTA urges residents to be vigilant of their surroundings during the poor weather. Motorists and residents are also encouraged to be cautious.
