KZN MEC for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) Sipho Hlomuka has urged residents to exercise extreme caution as inclement weather conditions continue across large parts of the province.
Heavy rain in and around Durban has led to a landslide at La Mercy where parts of a road collapsed and a section of a house was washed away. In KwaDukuza, Ward 16, a house collapsed as a result of the heavy rains. No injuries or fatalities were reported in these incidents, both of which took place this morning.
Hlomuka has assigned disaster management teams to provide the necessary support to the affected families and to investigate the circumstances surrounding these incidents. The teams are continuing to monitor areas that are prone to weather-related incidents. Residents who experience weather-related incidents are urged to contact their local disaster management centre.
