  1. My daughter lives in George. I asked her to let me know if they’d have to vacate their home during the night but no word from her so hopefully all is alright. The sinkholes that have appeared are scary

  3. This is our rain for water. Sorry about that! We have enough water to survive. These floods happen mostly in cities because the cities are badly built. Now drop the price of water please!

  4. One has to remember that South Africa is run by an evil president that only cares about money and the murdering of billions of people. So sometimes things like this do happen as a sign of warning to the president himself. I am sorry for your damage. The president and the other politicians that have encouraged this lockdown or the murdering of billions of innocent people, they are to be punished. As for their land that they rule, one cannot expect it to be good. Again I am sorry for the damage done. The message is for the president to end lockdown and stop murdering people.

  6. I saw again most people say the drains were blocked and don’t get cleaned regularly and it also caused that the water could not run away fast enough, i saw a clip on SABC 2 this morning about all the debris against the fences ,, but we all know thats ANC fault

  7. We haven’t had rain like this in close to twenty two years. Our dams are suddenly full. The forests are happy and that’s the main thing.

  8. @ anthonygermany:
    100%! In cities drains are garbage dumps and every time it rains it floods. I however would think George is different in that regard as sanitation there has not collapsed.

  9. They must clean the storm drains. black municipalities no longer do that. I bet that you will find trolleys and homeless people and trash and that sort of thing in storm clearing drains.

  10. George, beautiful George.
    We in Ladysmith, KZN had our fair share of floodings, The Klipriver runs through sections of town, and with every rain downpour, the streets and houses and businesses got flooded in the lower areas – year after year. Eventually, after many years, they build a dam with large “keer-walle” section and that brought a big relief to the town.
