Following Tuesday’s rain damage in La Mercy, Durban, the relevant departments are ready to fix the area.

eThekwini Municipality spokesperson Msawakhe Mayisela said three houses were affected by the rain earlier this week, the worst of which was in La Mercy.

“Our water department, fire department and disaster management, among others, attended. On site were the assessors from the insurance company given that the owners have household and building insurance cover. The city infrastructure will be rehabilitated by the various line departments.”
