KZN Government has confirmed that at least two people have died in New Hanover where a tornado ripped through the small town.

Several parts of the province were lashed by heavy downpours last night.

Cooperative Governance MEC Sipho Hlomuka and KZN Premier Sihle Zikalala visited the affected communities this morning, where houses were destroyed, trees were uprooted, and roads were flooded.

The MEC's spokesperson Senzelwe Mzila said that affected families would receive interim relief as people started rebuilding.

"Communities are being assisted by Cogta to put together their lives because many of them have lost their livelihoods. It's been a real tragedy. The premier has assured residents that the necessary support will be provided."
