Cold fronts and strong winds are expected to hit Durban along the ocean on Thursday night.

EThekwini Municipality's Emergency Control and Disaster Management Unit has issued a warning to residents to expect gale force winds this evening and tomorrow.

Meteorologist, Aslam Sardiwallam, of the South African Weather Service confirmed the warning.

After Tuesday's storm, the last thing Durban wants is more rain or wind. Houses, businesses, schools and schools were destroyed by the inclement weather. At least 11 people died as a result of the storm on Tuesday in the province.

Forecaster on duty Thandiwe Gumede said in Durban, winds were expected to reach maximum speeds of 80 km per hour.

However, Gumede said severe thunderstorms would not be experienced for a while.

The service says it needs R30 million to invest in infrastructure.

The eThekwini Municipality on Thursday warned Durban residents of another approaching storm, just days after a devastating one wreaked havoc in the city. "The wind will moderate overnight from the South", said Sardiwalla.

According to the Municipality's head of communications, Tozi Mthethwa, the cold fronts are expected to pass out to sea on the south of the province. Associated with these are strong winds. "Heavy rainfall is also expected this afternoon".

The city has requested residents to please only call the Emergency Management Call Centre for emergencies on 031 361 0000. Send us a WhatsApp message (not an sms) with your name and surname to 060 532 5535.
