A very hectic Wednesday morning in New Hanover. Blame it on a tornado that hit the city of KwaZulu Natal province in northeastern South Africa.
Blowing at a high speed, the wind washed away roofs of houses and reduced to rubble whole buildings built of clay. As for the human toll, it is for the moment of two deaths.
According to the private television channel News24, this is a 45-year-old woman killed by the fall of a tree and a man in his thirties who died after the roof of his house collapsed.
The Crisis Staff, chaired by Prime Minister Sihle Zikalala, has pledged to fund the care of the wounded and take care of the many homeless people that will be listed.
But the more than 4,000 residents of New Hanover are not out of the woods yet. According to the South African Meteorological Service (SAWS). In a statement, the institution noted the risk of floods and landslides following heavy rains.
Hence many calls for vigilance.
