- Videos and photos detailed the havoc the storm wreaked in the Mother City and it left Saffas stunned
Over the weekend, SA Weather Service issued a warning to Cape Provinces over an expected cold front on Monday.
Part of the statement read:
"Capetonians can expect chilly, windy and wet conditions to resume on Monday, 13 July 2020, since yet another cold front will make landfall on the southern-western areas of the country."
The SA Weather Service added:
"Gale to strong gale force winds (65-100km/h) are expected over most of the Western Cape, southern Northern Cape and parts of the Eastern Cape today (13 July 2020). Marine and coastal communities should especially take extreme precaution."
The warning was followed by a massive storm blowing into the Western Cape, and it left destruction in its wake.
Several videos were posted on social media showing monstrous waves breaking the land-sea barriers and covering the ground with white foam.
Social media user James Walsh shared a video and captioned it:
"Waves taller than buses smashing our coastline. The scale is hard to capture. This is one angry ocean."
Photos were also posted online showing the extent of the storm. Some of the images show how strong winds were, ripping into trees, while other photos display what was left of temporary class rooms.
Weather conditions in Cape Town has gone from bad to worse. Briefly.co.za reported last week on a video that shows a strong gale wind blowing over a truck.
The post was captioned:
"#CapeStorm Truck blown over outside Villiersdorp, Western Cape. As Massive storm moves in over Western Cape. Take care."
The video gathered over 11 800 views in just a couple of hours and Mzansi was left stunned by the footage. Some used the fact that it is a Simba chip truck to write hilarious puns.
