Heavy downpours in the Central Karoo have been welcomed by farmers and residents.
The region has been experiencing a drought for more than six years.
The downpours led to rivers running for the first time.
Spokesperson for the Western Cape Ministry of Local Government and Environmental Affairs, James-Brent Styan, says the South African
Weather Service is predicting further rainstorms, thunder showers and strong wind in the area: "Gamka dam catchment area just outside Bft West has recorded 70 mm to date, which is a lot of rain for the Karoo.
The Prince Albert area has also seen a lot of rain as well as Laingsburg which has seen the big rivers coming down again, the first time in many years.
Some areas still require rain, and we certainly hope the weather will continue."
