Death toll from floods in South Africa rises to 443

The death toll from devastating floods in the eastern coastal South African province of KwaZulu-Natal has risen to 443, the provincial premier announced late Sunday.

Sihle Zikalala said in a virtual media briefing that 63 people remained missing as rescue efforts continued.

Unusually heavy rains which began almost a week ago in parts of KwaZulu-Natal have destroyed homes, infrastructure and water and electricity supplies in most districts of the province.

The province estimates that the overall infrastructural damage is at over 10 billion South African rand ($682.7 million).
