Cape Town storms disrupt Muizenberg trains

Cape Town storms disrupt Muizenberg trains
I landed upon a headline report on the Cape Argus website stating:

"Hundreds of commuters were left stranded this morning after Metrorail closed eight rail stations from Muizenberg to Simon's Town due to damage caused by turbulent seas and huge waves crashing over the railway lines.

We live too far from the Muizenberg coast to verify whether or not commuters were stranded this morning, but I would imagine that after the past weekend's storms and raging seas the train lines would have certainly been knocked out. Click here to see exactly how close the rail lines are to the sea. Beautiful, but crazy!

I took the train photo a couple of months ago, so no, I wasn't aboard a rogue train today.
