Caught unawares by storms

Heavy showers caught residents of Hermanus off-guard last Friday with rainfall levels measuring up to 72 mm.

The storm caused Main Road to be closed temporarily as stormwater systems failed to keep up with the high volumes of rain coming down.

According to Overstrand Municipality, a restaurant in town and approximately 50 houses were under water in the Dubai informal settlement in Zwelihle. “Evacuations were underway last week Friday when the municipality opened Zwelihle Hall as temporary accommodation providing blankets to about fifty families,” an Overstrand municipal spokesperson said.

The following measurements of rainfall was measured at the Preekstoel Water Treatment Works:

– Friday: 72 mm

– Saturday: 5 mm

– Sunday: 25 mm

– Monday: 30 mm.

According to the Overstrand Municipality, the most rainfall recorded was in October 2004, when 161 mm of rain fell.

The De Bos Dam is at 47,93%.
