The Flooded Klein River

The torrential downpours over the Overberg area this last weekend have caused the Klein river to flood.  Travel between Hermanus and Stanford was interrupted when the bridge near Stanford had its approaches washed away.  Muddy water has turned the sea in Walker Bay brown and the beaches are littered with debris.  The photographs below record the estuary of the river and leave little doubt as to the volume of water pouring into the sea.  It will be a while before we can once again enjoy clean beaches and clean seawater.
