Witness The Exact Moment A River Forms A New Channel To The Ocean

Wayne Easton braved the elements to capture an interesting natural phenomenon: the Mahlongwa River in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa breaching its bank and cutting a channel to the Indian Ocean.

What seemingly starts as a calm and quiet spill, it soon becomes a roaring mass of water, louder than the ocean. This totally natural breach starts slowly and it pushes through the sand. As the river flows steadily, we can see that it makes a deeper and deeper channel to make its way to the ocean.

The good thing is that this huge amount of water will overflow into the ocean, not causing damage in the local area. As the channel becomes wider and wider, more water is going through, securing its way to the ocean. As it gathers momentum, rolling down the sand, the speed increases and the amount of water is huge.
