From Wynberg to the Cape Flats, here’s what the storm looked like

Latest update: 29 June 

This weekend was a wild one as another cold front hit the Western Cape. On Saturday morning, Cape Town experienced a severe storm, gale-force winds and flooding. Here are some videos and photos that were taken by Capetonians that show how intense the weather was.

Cape Town has been battered by a fierce cold front this week, leading to localised flooding and low temperatures with some rainfall estimations expected to exceed 70mm. The South African Weather Service's prediction of an intense cold front making landfall on Wednesday 10 June promised gale force winds, torrential downpours and snow in the surrounding mountains. This turbulent trio of conditions, while welcomed by some as the first proper storm of the Western Cape’s winter season, has left a trial of deluged induced damage.
