Snow continued to fall heavily in several parts of the country yesterday, including around Harrismith and Warden in the Free State.
Reports say the snow reached a depth of one metre in some places and is still causing havoc on the roads.
The snow-hit N3 highway between Johannesburg and Durban has been mostly opened this morning, except for a section that remains closed due to ice on the road.
Netcare 911’s Chris Botha says they haven’t had any calls reporting accidents in KwaZulu-Natal at the moment.
