The weekend floods have destroyed much of the repair work done on infrastructure following the April floods.

KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala said the recent rains had added to the already existing damage that relevant departments have started to fix.

The rain hit hardest in the north and parts of the south of Durban, eroding roads infrastructure, municipal infrastructure, and homes in parts of the north. At least 50 people were evacuated and placed in shelters around the Metro and Zikalala said at least one person was found dead in one of the local rivers.
