Tropical storm Eloise, which made landfall in Mozambique last week, continues to wreak havoc in parts of South Africa. 

The storm is affecting Limpopo, parts of Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal.

South African Weather Service forecaster William Msimanga told The Citizen last week that increased rainfall was expected to affect these parts as the storm moves over South Africa. 

Strong winds uprooted trees in parts of Mpumalanga, and in the Kruger National Park, a number of gravel roads and low-lying bridges have been closed. 

This as water levels of the Sabie, Sand and Crocodile rivers continues to increase due to heavy rain.
