Waterfall above the Huguenot Tunnel starts to flow again

A video of a waterfall starting to flow again near the Huguenot Tunnel is bringing some much needed hope to the Western Cape drought crisis.


Alida Müller captured the video which she quickly posted online.

“In absolute awe! What I just captured is unbelievable… water streaming from various waterfalls in the mountains above the Huguenot Tunnel.”

The rain is bringing some relief to easing the water shortage to some parts of South Africa as the country faces its worst droughts in years.

Dams and Rivers around South Africa have started to rise and flow over the last few days but authorities have said this amount still remains below average and we need to continue our efforts at saving water.

The City of Cape Town has confirmed that Day Zero has been pushed out to 2019. Originally slated for April this year, the date has been steadily pushed out with the introduction of stringent water measures as well as some much needed rainfall.

Müller was driving near the Huguenot Tunnel when she saw the magnificent water falling. The Huguenot Tunnel is a toll tunnel near Cape Town, South Africa. It extends the N1 national road through the Du Toitskloof mountains that separate Paarl from Worcester, providing a route that is safer and faster than travelling over the mountain.

“It happened so fast… one moment it was raining so hard and everything was blurred and foggy. The next moment I looked left and saw the most beautiful thing I have ever seen!

I was in awe today. I wanted to cry at the beautiful sight.

You can’t see it in the video but the water made massive rivers at the bottom of the mountain, most probably heading to Cape Town.”
