Natural disaster 12 April 2022. The worst flood in history in South Africa! Cities are sinking. Durban
Flooding in Durban, South Africa was caused by heavy rains that did not subside for more than 10 days.
It happened in the coastal province of KwaZulu-Natal, where many people still have not moved away from the elements.
Some in the city of Durban stand on rooftops waiting for help, but local media reports that only one helicopter is available to evacuate people.
The main roads of the city are blocked, and landslides have destroyed many houses.
Severe weather conditions are expected to continue today” in the areas around the municipality of Etekwini, which includes the city of Durban.
This year, South Africa is experiencing the La Niña weather phenomenon, which usually causes excess rainfall in the country and its neighbors.
More rain is expected in southern KwaZulu-Natal on Tuesday, according to the South African Weather Service, which advises citizens to stay away from flooded roads and bridges.
Major highways connecting South Africa's largest port to the commercial hub of Johannesburg and its east coast have been closed due to severe flooding.
NGOs hoping to help affected communities say access to areas is extremely difficult.
The Democratic Alliance in KwaZulu-Natal is today calling on Prime Minister Sikhle Zikalala and his MEC CoGTA Sipho Chlomuku to immediately begin the process of declaring the province a state of disaster.
Disaster response teams have already responded to a number of incidents, including the collapse of a wall in Etekwini.
Inclement weather over the weekend has increased the risk of localized flooding across the province as heavy rains continue.
