Roads have been washed away by the floods in Kenya

South Africa's IPSS medical emergency services revealed that four more dead bodies were recovered on Thursday, following the floods in Ladysmith in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN).

The dead bodies included that of a father and his toddler, apart from another man and a woman.

The tragic incident, which took place Monday, killed at least six people, while 10 were reported missing. The flooding had largely affected people living in a caravan park.

Samantha Meyrick, IPSS Medical Search and Rescue spokesperson, said that all the victims missing from the caravan park have been found. "The outstanding victims are from the vehicles washed away," the spokesperson said, IOL reported.

Bongiwe Sithole-Moloi, the MEC (Member of Executive Council) for Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, on Wednesday visited the families impacted due to floods.

"We met with the families of the victims and reassured them that the government will provide full support during this distressing period," Sithole-Moloi said. As a department, we have been providing assistance to all the affected families."

"We wish to assure the affected families that we will stand by them throughout this difficult period. Counseling services will be made available, and preparations for the burials of those who have passed away are under way."

Furthermore, he assured the families that the emergency services were tirelessly working in order to find the missing people.

Siboniso Mngadi, the KZN Department's spokesman, disclosed that the police were still in the process of identifying the bodies and reporting to their respective families. He added the "efforts to discover the missing people were intensified on Thursday through the deployment of additional resources from neighboring provinces," SNL24 reported.

Abed Karrim, the head of department of Inter-governmental Relations, said that the Al-Imdaad Foundation disaster team was supporting the families impacted by the floods with blankets, mattresses and hygiene packs.

Earlier this week, Nomusa Dube-Ncube, the premier of KwaZulu-Natal, also expressed sympathy toward the tragic incident on social media.

IPSS medical emergency services said on Tuesday that a massive storm hit the Ladysmith area on Sunday night, triggering a flash flood on Christmas Eve.

The incident took place after the South African Weather Service issued a warning last week about severe thunderstorms with strong damaging winds and heavy rainfall leading to floods in some localities.
