Three vessels have run aground in the Port of Durban, due to inclement weather conditions, according to South Africa’s Transnet National Ports Authority(TNPA).

As TNPA informed, the heavy weather caused all port operations to be suspended and the Authority’s marine services team are currently assisting with emergencies, including grounding of three ships, as well as breaking of other vessels’ mooring lines.

To date, several TNPA premises have been flooded, such as the Transnet Maritime School of Excellence in Bayhead Road, while the conditions are also expected to affect operations at the Port of Richards Bay.

The Authority said that no injuries have been reported.
