THE uMvoti Disaster Management continues to raise awareness in communities, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic and its regulations and restrictions, the unit has not been able to conduct awareness campaigns as one of its major function.
Head of Disaster Management Bhekumuzi Vilakazi said: “We have to conduct campaigns every month as part of our strategy. This week we are going to talk about flooding and lightning.
“A flood is an overflow of water that submerges land. Floods may result from the volume of water within a body of water, such as river or lake, which over flows or breaks levees with the result that some of the water escapes its usual boundaries, or may be due to accumulation of rain water on saturated ground and become a real flood.”
