Klerksdorp Tornado - 2007

A very strong tornado ripped through suburbs around Klerksdorp, blowing off roofs, collapsing walls uprooting trees and damaging cars and leaving thousands of people injured.

Between 30 000 and 40 000 residents of the affected townships were left without water and electricity after the tornado's path of destruction. The organization assisted in restoring part of the infrastructure.
