Floods kill 10, leave hundreds homeless in Eastern Cape Updated: 2022-01-11 05:21:18 KST

Massive floods around South Africa's eastern coast city of East London have killed at least ten people, and left hundreds without homes, since the weekend.
Local media footage showed rivers bursting through banks, leaving roads inundated.
It also reported that hundreds of homes had been washed away in the iron-roof informal settlements just outside the city.
Scientists predict that climate change is the cause of the worsening floods and droughts along South Africa's eastern coastline.
The deadly flood comes despite the country's Department of Environment drawing up a plan for the country to adapt to climate change in 2019, which included strengthening its preparedness to respond more quickly to weather disasters and help victims recover.
