    Unissued / unused footage - dates and locations may be unclear / unknown.

    Titles read: 'African Mirror No. 241 - RECORD RAINS WREAK HAVOC IN TRANSVAAL'.

    South Africa.

    Several shots of flooded areas in the Transvaal - flooded streets, fields. People carrying belongings from their homes. Water gushing under bridges while cars sit on top. Farm fields flooded. More flooded residential areas. Fast flowing river water. Grass uprooted by rapids that blocked the sluice gates. Men working on weir. Wrecked, upside down lorry that was swept into the river. Gushing water pouring over spillway near Pretoria and rushing along.

    Several shots of destruction left in residential area of Clifftown (?) near Johannesburg after the flood waters swept through. People pick their way amongst the ruins - corrugated iron sheets lie about.
