Big storm in Heidelberg at the moment. Raining extremely hard, lightning and thunder is bad and it's also hailing a lot.

Again amazing how localized these cells actually are

Yes it's really coming down very hard. The whole morning the sun was shining then suddenly it got dark and within 5 minutes the rain came pelting down in big buckets.

You going to miss the good traditional Transvaal thunderstorm(s)?
Not really. Don't enjoy the worry about lightning damage, hail damage etc.
Besides, there were a few decent storms when I was there last. Even thunder in the middle of a snowfall.

Massive storm. One of my garage ceiling panels collapsed. Somewhere with the hail, water started coming through on the ceiling.

Very strong radar returns this afternoon - anything above 54dB is a high likelihood of hail.

Coming down in Norwood for a while now. Big rain on the East Rand too, Glen Marais Kempton Park for one, power outage to boot. Benoni, Alberton localized flooding reported.... This is turning ugly, quickly...
