Officials say 40 killed in South African floods

According to South Africa’s government, at least 40 people have been killed across the country and more than 6,000 displaced by flooding that has submerged houses, roads and crops since December, CNN reports. Officials estimate the damage to infrastructure and agricultural produce will cost the country millions of dollars, and forecasters predict more rain is on the way. The South African Weather Service said most of the country’s rivers, dams and reservoirs have reached their capacity, and any additional rainfall is expected to cause further flooding.
