Good to see....we are lucky here as even if we have what we would consider bad rains it's still a lot...and this year been good...basically had tain nearly every day....our manager got excited when it didn't rain for 3 days just now....thunder rumbling around as I type this..
Hi Spike, you are obviously following the Kariba levels as I am, and although the lake is not unusually full for this time of year at about 28% generating capacity, what is unusual is that the filling cycle has started about a month early and is rising steeply. If the Zambezi comes down big time the only course of action they have is to open all the turbines south and north bank. If the dam overtopped it wouldnt be serious on the south bank because of the abbutment, but north bank is straight wall to gorge so an erosion problem. Let's get lots of rain, but no surprise cyclones joining in!
