Title: Show your flooding !
Post by: GlenInk on June 10, 2011, 11:50:25 am
With so much rain around, I thought to start a flood thread !

The pic below was just sent to me ! Its the Abbotsford Causeway in East London ! Its higher than  this  now, it is by the butcher and still rising. They are evacuating the houses !  :o :o :o

The relevance of the butcher . . . Thats how high the water was in the floods of the 70`s !  :o

In Redhouse, in front of my sister boyfriends parents house. There is normally about a 3 to 4 meter drop from the houses to the river, and there are jetty's about 3 m below water there somewhere.

I went out last Sunday looking for the Groendal Dam. The first road I took was still flooded, so I took what I thought was an alternative route. Turns out I got completely lost, but I did manage to find the Sandriver Dam totally by chance. And it was also overflowing.

I'm gonna go look for Groendal this weekend... :D

I believe that East London and PE got klapped by heavy rain and hail, some even reporting snow in EL.

There is chaos with the amount of water thats come down.

Where are the pics guys !  :deal:
