Heavy rain wreaks havoc in Kwazulu Natal

Several people, including a one-year-old baby, had to be rescued from their Durban homes on the 28 November 2011.

Families in four homes on Randles Road were stuck in waist-deep water after a heavy downfall, Netcare911 spokesperson Chris Botha said.

"At around 1am, Netcare 911 paramedics, their rescue team as well as the SAPS search and rescue were called to the four houses that had flooded to waist deep in the heavy rain.

"Rescue personnel assisted an elderly lady and a baby less than one year to safety. Both were treated for the cold and the elderly patient had to be treated for an asthma attack."
