Shacks flooded after week of Cape rains
Dam levels are rising and Day Zero in 2019 is unlikely, but for hundreds of thousands of people, the rains bring hardship
Cape Town’s much-needed rains have raised the dam levels to over 40% (as of 21 June), higher than at the same time in 2017 and 2016, but still lower than 2015. Day Zero is unlikely to occur in 2019. But while the rains are welcome, they are still a nightmare for hundreds of thousands of the City’s residents. On Monday Masixole Feni photographed flooding in informal settlements in Khayelitsha and Masiphumelele.
