At least 59 people have died in floods and mudslides after rainstorms struck the KwaZulu-Natal province, authorities said.

Rescue operations, aided by the military, are underway to evacuate people trapped in affected areas, the provincial Department of Cooperative Governance said.

Those trapped include teachers and students at a Durban secondary school, it said.

The South African port city of Durban and its surroundings awoke to unrecognizable landscapes.

The authorities said on Tuesday at least 45 people died in floods and mudslides after rainstorms struck the KwaZulu-Natal province.

In South Africa’s second most populous province, mudslides and landslips shut dozens of roads forcing residents to fight their way through.

Nathan Berg, a resident, remembers the terrible night water level rose: The rain and the floods got very heavy, the bottom of this bank gave way and caused the rest of the bank to give away which caused the wall to give away. And now that is all across the road.

More than 2,000 houses and 4,000 “informal” homes, or shacks, have been damaged, provincial premier told the media.

Some truck drivers spending the night in their vehicle even had to flee for their lives.

At around 3 am, Mthunzi Ngcobo starts, I felt the truck shaking and I thought maybe someone bumped it and when I tried to open the curtain I saw the water level which was very high. I tried frantically to start the truck, and it refused at first and then eventually it started, and then there was lots of water so I drove and then started waking others up. I managed to get out of the yard and then I got the other men out.

The country’s rail service PRASA said landslips and rubble on the tracks had forced it to suspend all train services in the province.

The disaster management department in KwaZulu-Natal province, of which Durban is the largest city ordered those residing in low-lying areas to move to higher ground.

If your own name suspects you. Many call the singer Zuckerone only by his nickname. Only one person uses the real name of the Italian musician.

According to his own statements, the Italian pop musician Zuccero (“Senza una Donna”) is almost exclusively referred to by his sweet nickname, even in his family.

With one exception. “My younger brother still calls me Adelmo. But there is nothing I can do to get everyone to call me by my nickname. When someone calls me by my real name, it seems very strange to me. “Then I become more skeptical,” said a 66-year-old man whose real name is Adelmo Fornachiari from the Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung.

The nickname comes from school days

His elementary school teacher once gave him the name Zucchero (also sugar). “I was a very bright, handsome, well-mannered boy. My teacher thought I was so funny that she called me “Zucchero”.

The singer, known for his hats, has a huge collection of hats, as he told the newspaper: “I like to go to flea markets, buy hats, coats. I have to have more than 400 hats by now. My closets are exploding. ”

Better a poor horse than no horse at all

“On the other hand, rock clichés almost do not suit him,” said Zuckeron. “Apart from alcohol, at least I have never used drugs.” She likes to party after shows with the band. “But I do not need medicine for that. All I need is a good bottle of wine with quiet music and a little flirting with beautiful women. There are still group members, but not as many as before. ”
