In KwaZulu-Natal, a warning was issued for flooding due to heavy rains. There is also a possibility of gale force winds. 
MEC for Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nomusa Dube-Ncube urged residents in the province to be extra cautious.

We have activated all disaster centers across all districts for teams to be on standby to assist and work together with law enforcement agencies to ensure that human lives are protected.
