Last week reports said that my hometown of Kimberley experienced the worst flooding from torrential rains in recorded history.

Many homes were left without electricity for days as emergency crews scrambled to deal with the damage from the floods.

Reports also described the damage done to the habitat of the Lesser Flamingos at Kamfers Dam on the Joburg road leading into Kimberley.

Our world ... she is changing.
