Roads and some building structures took a hard hit in areas like Umdloti in the north of Durban.

As search and rescue operations take place, several people have been rescued.

Part of those rescued was the Govender family who were also affected last month.

Last month they lost some of their belongings in the floods at their Lazy Lizard Residents Home but went back to live there again.

But history repeated itself six weeks later.

After he and his family were rescued, Kevin Govender told Eyewitness News they had lost a vehicle during the last floods and this time around two of his vehicles were trapped inside.

He said he would have to make start afresh and look for a new place to live.
