How much rain fell in your neighborhood?

A low pressure system off the coast of Madagascar and Mozambique caused havoc for residents of the North Coast this week, when rain poured down in a deluge, that caused low-level flooding and road hazards.

In the ZO Weekend Edition today, we break down the rain recorded in various areas, and highlight various incidents that took place on local roads, including a tanker vs car accident that tragically left one man dead on the N2 near Tugela Bridge, and closure of roads due to flooding and rock slides.

Coincidentally enough, this follows the exact pattern of torrential rain the area received last year on the same day.

Were you adversely affected by the deluge? Please let us know how and where your incident took place in the comments section.
