Show your flooding !
« 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.

Not in Cape Town, but one of our sites in the Free State where they are(was) busy building a road bridge.
Here is some before and after pics.

Photo 1 to 4 was before and work going well...

Photo 5 to 8 is during the flood making our formwork look like viking boats...

The 3rd last pitcure from the bottom is a friends house - they had to leave their houses etc @ 10 this morning.

Lucky for them, nothing happened as yet - let's hold thumbs.
