Durban flooding again 💔. My heart goes out to all those affected by terrible rains last night. We spent most of night assisting our neighbor who's home was completely flooded. Small flooding in our home seemed insignificant compared to what others gone through. #DurbanFloods— Tracy Lee (@TracyLeeDbn) April 23, 2019
