Australia Karoo Rainfall Cape Town Durban Storm relief efforts

Thanks to the latest rainfall, Cape Town Dams are filling up. They are currently up by 3% and in comparison to last years stats, up by 4.2%. With more rainfall predicted, this is very happy news!

 

The Cape Town Water Dashboard is showing some positive stats after the recent rainfall. This is a hopeful start to the winter rainy season.

There has been a 2.9% increase in dam levels since last week. This is great news and what is even better, is the fact that rain is predicted for the rest of the week.

A cold front had approached the Western Cape and led to approx. 20 – 30 mm of rain on the coast within the first day. Images of waterfalls tumbling down Table Mountain went viral and people rejoiced.

The rainfall will continue with another torrential day predicted for the 31st of May which will start at the coast and move inland. By the 1st of June, areas like Ceres and the likes will also receive the mass of clouds, cold and rain.

While the news of the rainfall is an absolute blessing, it is important to continue water saving efforts in the Western Cape. Take a look at the rainfall measured in the last 24-hours below.
