Recent heavy and consistent rainfall and have wreaked havoc across most of Lesotho. Flash floods have caused drownings and farmers have grown weary regarding the success of their crops this year due to the excess water. Most of the top soil has washed away, down the mountains and off to South Africa somewhere, where they too are experiencing the devastating effects of mother nature. Perhaps the most traumatic effects are being felt in Leribe, where the drastic rainfall has washed away entire cemetaries, leaving members of the deceased family member scrambling to gather the remains of their loved ones to rebury them elsewhere.
