Big cutter-strof!

Does PE's rainfall come mainly in the winter time?

Crazy. It has been raining full time in Cape Town, basically overflowing, really thought NMB was doing better also.

Fortunately we're not yet at Day Zero:

Intermittent water supply for large parts of Nelson Mandela Bay

Nelson Mandela Bay residents can expect continued intermittent water supply as the Emerald Hill reservoir runs dry.

In a statement on Friday the municipality said the reservoir fed Walmer Heights, Miramar, parts of Lovemore Heights, Charlo, Fairview and surrounds.

“The reticulation system is seriously compromised and intermittent supply is going to be experienced throughout the metro.

“Water tankers will be deployed. However, given the extent of disruption it will be impractical to deploy tankers in all these areas.”

The municipality said the Chelsea reservoir was only at 11% capacity and areas including Kabega, Greenbushes, Rowallan Park, Hunter’s Retreat, Westering and Linton Grange, among others, would also remain without water.
