Heavy showers in the catchment area of the Tsauchab River saw some water flowing down the dry river bed and reaching the Sesriem Canyon.

The Omatako dam which has been dry for some time already received some inflow while the Daan Viljoen Dam has started over flowing into the Tilla Viljoen Dam in Gobabis after the Black Nossob River has been flowing steadily for the past three days.
