Sadly a woman was killed by being swept away in a flash flood in the Wolkberg wilderness area. The incident was posted on the MCSA SAR Facebook page:

Condolences to the family.

Note the warning issued on that post:

We urge hikers and members of the public to exercise caution during rainy conditions, even when streams are not flowing strongly as conditions may be different further upstream.


Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.

Hmm. Just found out who the girl was.
Caved a lot with her and her husband. Sad days.

Just goes to show that even the most seasoned mountaineers can be caught in a bad situation.
