We try to put up notices about long-term road closures because of damage caused by floods.

Getting up-to-date information when the roads are temporarily closed because of rain is a bit more difficult because the situation can change on an hourly basis. I recall that signs do go up on the N4 if the entry gates are closed.

We will ask for information to be given here and we'll post if we receive anything.

Taken on 18 Feb Malagant.

The river is running nicely (and there has been more rain since then) , but not full as you can see. (Excuse the beverage in the pic, but I took it to make my kids in the US homesick :twisted: and is the only pic I have of the river :roll: )

Taken from high water bridge over Letaba yesterday evening. The river is flowing the strongest (widest) I have ever seen, and there was good rain overnight here.
