Take care - severe weather on the way”

The South African Weather Service said in a tweet this morning that downpours are expected along the KZN coast - with chances of localised flooding from this afternoon.

In heavy rains, stay indoors and off the roads; avoid crossing rivers and streams where the water level is above your ankles. "We do have a warning out for heavy rainfall along the coastline and severe thunderstorms over the northern parts of KwaZulu-Natal". A second warning of possible severe thunderstorms with strong winds and a possibility of hail has also been issued for north-western KZN from 1pm to 9pm this evening.

The Disaster Management Centres in areas set to be affected, have been activated and are on high alert to intervene should they be required.

"The first line of defence is the people and their conduct in such life-threatening conditions".

- People are urged to minimise movement. Road users should not take unnecessary risks and are urged to be extra careful as they undertake their journeys. "We urge Citizens to take this warning seriously as it might prove to be the difference between life and death", Dube said.
