The Durban Port manager Moshe Motlohi said it was still too early to assess the extent or costs of damages to sub-Saharan Africa's largest port, which is a key transit point for commodities such as maize. "Several TNPA premises have been flooded, including the Transnet Maritime School of Excellence in Bayhead Road", the TNPA said.

"We are extremely appreciative of the excellent collaboration between TNPA and various stakeholders who acted quickly and efficiently to partially restore normality at the port". Terminal and rail operations have been suspended to ensure the safety of people and equipment.
