    @Muffin, thank you so much. I have felt so scared. But the sounds of Zambia "after dark" are really soothing I have found.

    My stroke hubby just went back into hospital with a suspected another stroke. I came here to hear the birds and the hippos to calm me down. Its working.

    01.11.17 19;30 pm UK time. Can hear a lot of 'sloshing about' and 'snorting'! Would love to be able to see on some sort of night cam - maybe next year! :)

    The reason is likely this. This camera is against a river bank, once the rain really starts the river will fill up quickly taking everything in its path. It takes only 2ft of water to sweep down river even the most capable truck let alone everything else. So everything has to come down and the people out of there before that happens. I live in an enviroment that we get much the same to a lessor extent. And was curious about the area so spent sometime looking it up. All low lying areas likely flood quickly. I hope this helps explain why they have to pack up, shut down and leave the area. I am not 100% sure of this, but probably close.

    Sandra, yes anytime now. We have been waiting for the warning they are about to take them down. From what I have learned they have too. There is really no way to leave them up.
