The flow over the falls yesterday was about 800 cubic metres per second. Saturday it will be about 1750 and by Wednesday it will reach a peak of 3500. Last year it reached a peak of 3000, so this year it will be an even bigger spectacle.

Judging from the predicted inflow graphs to the Vaaldam and the current heavy rainfall in the allready waterlogged catchment area , a spectacle can be predicted at Augrabies in 10 days time ...

Good evening all
This is not happening February this is happening between the 13 and 20th of this month and it is gonna be even better.
According the Department of water affairs we will be expecting 5000 cumecs. If we could only place somebody here at the reception to answer the water calls it would be great,this is really rough.

According to the newspapers, the volume of water could reach the 8000 cumecs level, last seen during the 1988 floods. WOW, this should be an awesome sight.
