Storm turns roads into rivers in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa

Yesterday around 3:30 p.m. a storm blew up in Pietermaritzburg, Kennedy Province, South Africa, causing localized flooding and destruction.

The severe thunderstorm – with torrential rain and large golf ball-sized hail – lasted half an hour, but left significant damage. The hail fell several trees and power lines, tore off parts of roofs, and damaged windows and cars. Traffic guru Rob Beezy posted footage of roads flooded and wrote, “Pietermaritzburg: When Roads Turned into Rivers.”

Businesses were forced to close, and the South African Post Office tweeted that “due to heavy rain and flooding in Pietermaritzburg (yesterday), the Mayor’s Walk and Pietermaritzburg post offices will not be open (today) 23/12/2021.”
