Late last night, a massive storm hit the Ladysmith area, resulting in a flash flood of the Bell’s Spruit and Kliprivier. Amongst the flooded areas were the local SPCA and Caravan Park, with several vehicles reportedly washed away.

The SAPS K9 Search & Rescue member worked tirelessly to assist in the recovery efforts. However, due to exhaustion, the search has been called off for the day. Additional resources, including a 4-man team and 2 vehicles from IPSS Search and Rescue, have been deployed to work with the SAPS K9 team. Additional members remain on standby to provide further assistance if required.

In response to the crisis, the Al-Imdaad Foundation will be providing aid to those affected by the floods. Mayor Zama Sibisi of Alfred Duma municipality disclosed that disaster management teams are actively responding to the crisis.
