Starting with some light rain here, with less-than-light thunder
Great news for you guys and it is a sight to see when the southern part of SWA floods around Keetmanshoop and Grunau! Saw that once many many years ago! Hope you will post some pics and videos!Reports of flooding over parts of Namibia filtering in..... some stunning flood video's doing the rounds,
A Farmer in the South of Namibia, a friend, sent an email on to us yesterday, super excited, showing a small river in flood on his farm, first time in 90 years that it has flowed....
Everyone up this end of the world, Black, White and Coloured are all excited about this....... so much rain, eventually...
1972 or 73 can't remember which year but have driven in the heavy rain from Windhoek to Pretoria. In some places in the south of SWA one had to guess the road as it was one big sea of water. The road from Upington to Olifantshoek was ready to be tarred but destroyed by the big rains and a slippery nightmare to drive. Took us more than 5 hours for the stretch, more next to the road than on it.Great news for you guys and it is a sight to see when the southern part of SWA floods around Keetmanshoop and Grunau!

Get 1/some of these for your DB board - no guarantee it will work against a direct strike, but better to have it installed than nothing at all - I'v got a few installed and touch wood I've never had issues except with lightning coming through my old DSL line a couple of years agoHad some severe thunder in Centurion Highveld, our complex gate system is destroyed intercoms no longer working nor can you call the gate via phone. 3 TVs blown in total so far from reports via the whatsapp group thats when the first strike landed with a loud bang and the power surged.
