For info:
SABC radio news (no link?) reports that a major storm yesterday (Sat 10th) caused structural damage to the police station in (e)Ngcobo (about 80km west of Mthatha).

Based on radar tracks, this would have been the 65-70 dBZ storm that I mentioned on this forum yesterday. Here is a closeup frame (75km range) just after the storm passed over (1215Z), as it reached its peak intensity. The track motion was from west to east, and a previous frame shows the storm very close to the town center.

SAWDIS:  I could not find any further detail regarding storm damage in the area.  Maybe the public or media can assist in this regard and provide the SAWDIS with more information. If you have any information or photos please forward it to the SAWDIS.
