Capetonians have taken to social media to share all the incredible photos and videos captured in todays electric storm.


We have compiled a few images and videos of the rain, hail, lighting and thunder that has been part of Cape Towns day. The video footage is fantastic and the images equally so!

The best kind of weather. 😍 . . #storm #lightning #thunder #capetown #hail #rain #amazing #workview

There has been a picture making its way around the internet as well, it is of a palm tree that was struck by lightning. It is unclear where the true origin of the picture is from, some say Durbanville and others, Brakenfell.


This video was posted of the incomplete roads and if you look between the two you can see there is a waterfall of sorts.

What a site….. #capetownrain #rain #water #iloveit #capetown

The weather has been so mixed that in some places it even started hailing, all of these usually get associated with a highveld storm so it’s quite something seeing it on the coast.
