In April 2022 the town experienced severe flooding which resulted in homes being damaged.

“Community members are not able to leave their current locations. We are just standing here and we do not know what to do because there is water all over the town,” Sajonisi Woods Forum public relations officer, Andile Mzungule told News24.

Meanwhile, the South African Weather Services (SAWS) has issued an Orange Level 6 Warning of disruptive rain resulting in flooding of susceptible formal and informal settlements expected in the Port St Johns, Nyandeni and Ngquzani areas in the Eastern Cape.
