Apocalypse Now
Submitted by capdog on Monday, March 19, 2007 - 08:43

In case you didn't already get ten copies in your inbox, here are the photos from this morning's chaos at the beachfront! Huge surf has pretty much destroyed anything within fifty meters of the usual high water mark. Um, time to repent, sinners?























I've compiled all the pics into one gallery, check it out.

March 2007 Cyclone

This is going to cost a lot of money to fix.

well what are the 7 byblical end time events?

I think the final stage when the ground opens and the sinners are swallowed up by hell, is when Burn closes its doors for good, or something like that...there have been some recent close calls in that department...hmmm...

and who remembers enough from Sunday school about those insidious Apocalyptic prophesies

maybe only the bigotted christian-types should be quaking in their boots...

Went down this morning before graft - holy crapulation - I haven't seen this kinda liquid fury since Demoina in '87 - mental mental chicken oriental radio rental fuckin' bloody MENTAL! The south breakwater at the harbour mouth is pretty constantly submerged as these southern swells attempt to gnaw their way through solid concrete - huge growlers are heaving way, way out there, the biggest being off Blue Lagoon, which is where the water-based monstrosities are doing their best to touch the sky. Some nutters were having the ball of their crazy unhunged lives, getting towed into some 8-10 footers...one of the concrete slabs that make up Bay pier has been lifted and moved about 2 metres - those things weigh like, a ton!? Expect more fun and games this afternoon when high tide comes in at 4:21.

Monster wave warning issued

check out the marine report HERE

from iol : click HERE for full story

Durban hospitals are filling up with storm victims as rescue and emergency services prepared for "the mother of all storms", expected to hit the KZN coastline at about 6pm on Monday.

"We are mobilising every resource, from surf rescue helicopters to available ambulances and even off-duty personnel," said Netcare 911 spokesperson Chris Botha.

Inspector Troy Alison of the Police Search and Rescue team said all their resources were already in place. "All emergency services are working together and we are making contingency plans ahead of this afternoon's storm. Apparently it's going to be much worse than last night," Alison said.

'Others are still missing and feared dead'
Meanwhile, the eThekwini Disaster Management team have been locked in a meeting since Monday morning to decide whether homes situated along beaches should be evacuated before the storm.

All beaches and ports were closed on Monday after the South African Weather Service issued a national warning that high seas with wave heights in excess of seven metres are expected along the southern KwaZulu-Natal coastline. The Weather Service had earlier predicted that waves would reach five metres, but the storm has been upgraded.

Freak tidal waves battered the coastline on Sunday night and dozens of people had to be rescued, while many others are still missing and feared dead.

Emergency services fielded numerous reports of missing people, collapsing homes and flooding. Areas devastated by the almost five-metre waves included Umkomaas, Isipingo, Ballito, Durban beachfront, the Bluff, Umdloti, Margate, and other coastline areas.

In Isipingo, seven people were rescued from a rooftop after the hotel they were staying in was flooded by high tidal waves. And at the Blue Lagoon beach, two friends were standing in the parking lot when they were hit by a freak wave.

On Durban's beachfront, some restaurants and shops were damaged after two freak waves "roughly three metres high" struck between 2 and 3am.

Steers, Wimpy, Wrap It up, Milky Lane and other shops were battered. When the Daily News visited the area, owners and inspectors were inspecting the damages.

Windows were shattered and doors were completely broken down. Fourteen workers who were trapped inside the restaurants were rescued by emergency services and taken to various hospitals.

There were no reported deaths.
