Mbombela - Pictures have emerged of a Spar in Komatipoort, south of the Kruger National Park completely flooded. Certain roads in Kruger National Park were closed on Thursday due to the high water volumes in the area.

The Intelligence Bureau SA posted the images to Facebook, with many people commenting on the new rains in the province, with some welcoming the rains, and others joking about it.

“Delighted cause it's also raining in my home town Malelane,” said Facebook user Leornard Skhumbuzo.

“Sell gumboots and put everything for sale in the store. At least there will be a gain on gumboots and save the stock from damage. HW GUD IS THAT,” said Alex Sveet Tau.

“This is good for the fruits and veggies ... isn't it?” Jez Mukwevho said.

The South African Weather Service on Tuesday warned of heavy rain leading to localised flooding, possible in places over Mpumalanga, southern Limpopo and northern parts of Gauteng.

Kruger National Park meanwhile announced on Monday it has opened up waterholes in some dry riverbeds in a bid to save vulnerable animals from the drought, Traveller24 reported.

On Thursday, the park confirmed that water levels have subsided in certain parts of the park after the heavy rainfall this week.

The Sabie and Sand River low water bridges in the south, and the affected roads H1-2 between H4/1 - H12 have been reopened.
