KwaZulu-Natal went from floods to fires on Wednesday as the devastating impact of one of the worst downpours in its history emerged and those affected vented their frustration by burning tyres on rain-soaked roads.

More than 300 people had died and the toll was expected to rise. Communities felt forsaken as residents desperately tried to cope with the death and devastation that caused roads and bridges to collapse, swept away homes and created fatal mudslides.

It is a disaster of massive proportions — floods in KwaZulu-Natal in 1987 claimed more than 500 lives.
