DURBAN – The eThekwini Municipality on Thursday warned Durban residents of another approaching storm, just days after a devastating one wreaked havoc in the city. 

At least 11 people died in KwaZulu-Natal after the province was hit by massive storm on Tuesday, which was dubbed the worst one to hit the area in years.

Officials warned that the death toll could climb as rescue operations resumed on Thursday.
