This morning at approx 09:00hrs a mini tornado hit Rorke's Drift

Trees, telephone & power lines, and roofs ripped. The museum lost part of its front porch. The old tree in front of the church badly damaged.

30mm of rain fell in 15 minutes causing havoc. So far no reports of injury should have more detail to-morrow.

to-day max 17 min 12 hum 90%. cool weather for to-morrow, warming up towards the week-end.

Everyone is hard at work clearing up for the week-ends activities

Thursday's storm update…scores of trees were literary snapped to destruction house roofs blown off and miraculously no injuries reported. The "twister" came up from the south causing havoc in the community of Shiyane and several kilometers beyond. The museum's roof has been repaired and services have been restored. To-days events took place without any upset thanks to Petrus and his crew. Life appears to back to normal.

To-days weather: early morning scattered low cloud and mist over the river clearing up to warm, humid, and partly cloudy skies. Expected: light showers this evening. Min 17 max 30 hum 85%
