The large white house, which had largely collapsed in a landslide has lain exposed since the storm and residents feared looters would attack.
A resident said the house had indeed been looted.
Johan Fourie, who had rented the house, was distraught when he answered the phone.
“I am so tired and people have been calling non-stop. I was told not to go to the house because it was unstable. They are taking whatever memories I had, I have nothing,” he said.
