Authorities say the death toll from floods and mudslides after rainstorms struck the South African port city of Durban and surrounding areas in Kwazulu-Natal province has reached 59.


The country’s meteorologists last night forecasted more disruptive rains on the way, but expected the rainfall system to weaken considerably today, a disaster that has unleashed massive damage to lives and infrastructure, affecting all races and classes from rural areas, townships to luxury estates.


The education authorities disclosed that fifty-two secondary students and teachers who were stranded at a Durban secondary school, were successfully airlifted to safety following a long traumatic night.


Meanwhile, the country’s President, Cyril Ramaphosa is set to visit the coastal province of KwaZulu-Natal where key roads are shut and mudslides have destroyed many homes following prolonged rains.
