Floods in South Africa – a ”climate catastrophe of enormous proportions”

After the relentless rain, South Africa sounds the alarm on the climate
crisis. Many are still missing after this month’s floods. Extreme weather
is becoming more frequent, and it can be devastating.

The South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa, described a “catastrophe of enormous
proportions” and attributed the disaster to the climate emergency. “It
is telling us that climate change is serious, it is here,” Ramaphosa said
as he visited the flooded metropolitan area of eThekwini, which includes
Durban, shortly after the floods. “We no longer can postpone what we need
to do, and the measures we need to take to deal with climate change.”
