While parts of Cape Town experienced hail late yesterday afternoon some areas of Hermanus were flooded by an unusually heavy downpour. This photo was shared by Bobby von During who happened to be in Main Road at the time of the downpour.

On the right you can see water lapping at the entrance of Betty Blue Bistro and by the looks of things Pappin & Pretorius Optometrists was seriously flooded. We anticipate that many more businesses will discover that they have been affected by the flash flood this morning.
