The death toll resulting from intense rainfall in the eastern coastal South African province of KwaZulu-Natal has risen to 306, officials have said.
The rains which began on Monday night flooded settlements, ravaged homes, swept away roads and displaced dozens.
In a statement on Wednesday, the provincial government, which confirmed the number of dead, said the fatalities could rise further.
