Wow, those pics speak a thousand words and bring it home!
Devastation and hard to believe how high that little trickle of a river came up.
Thanks for the pics Avon.

The H12 bridge over the Sabie River.
Image

The debris turned the 400 metre bridge into a dam which flooded across the road. The river would have been more than half a kilometre wide when it left this debris so far into the bush.
Image

The tar was lifted from a section of the H4-1 just after the bridge, and deposited neatly on the verges. You can just see the beginning of that section in the distance here.

We paid a quick visit to KNP at the beginning of February - here are a few pics of the flood damage.
This is at the bridge over the Nwaswitshaka River on the Kruger Gate/Skukuza road, taken on the 6th of February.

At the high-water bridge over the Sabie river the landscape has changed dramatically.
