South African consular officials ready to help with hurricane aftermath
South African consular officials are ready to help South Africans who may be in distress in the United States as a result of Hurricane Sandy, International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane said.
"Our officials remain on high alert and ready to help anyone who needs assistance as a result of the hurricane," she told journalists in Pretoria.
The hurricane has flooded many cities along the US East Coast, and has left residents without power.
"We will provide more information on the impact of the hurricane as soon as further developments are available," she said.
