THE danger of flash floods can never be overestimated especially when people cross flowing rivers. This traveller had to be rescued after his vehicle was washed down the Tsondab River when the water volume increased suddenly. Farmers and lodge owners from the area of Solitaire had to tow the vehicle from the flooding river. Water from the Tsondab River flowed amongst the world-renowned dunes of Sossusvlei further to the west on Thursday. No injuries to humans or serious damage to the vehicle occurred.
