51 People Killed In South Africa Floods

Fifty-one people have died in floods that ravaged parts of the coastal province of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa's southeast, local authorities said.

The flooding began on Monday after heavy rain caused mudslides in several towns in Durban, government spokesman Lennox Mabaso told CNN.

Mabaso said there were reported incidents of collapsed buildings, walls and flooded homes in the area.

He added that the South African Weather Service has warned there could be more rains in the coming days.

Makeshift shelters and food are being provided for those displaced from their homes in the aftermath of the flooding.

State-owned broadcaster SABC puts the number of those displaced at over 1000.
