WATCH River Start Flowing For 1st Time In YEARS in Western Cape, South Africa

Extreme weather hit parts of southern Africa in the past 24 hours with heavy rain and flash floods in areas of South Africa, and snow in Lesotho.

Watch the incredible video below, filmed by Dana du Plessis, which shows the Keisies River in Montagu, Western Cape, as it starts to flow again!

Storm Report SA said it was a “textbook flash flood” and that the river was flowing for the first time in three or four years.

In 2014 a similar flash flood washed the bridge away.
