EXTREME HEAT, HEAVY SWELLS WARNING FOR THE WEEKEND

Rough seas, very hot conditions and high temperatures are expected for the weekend (Friday, 21/01/2022 - Sunday, 23/01/2022).

The National Sea Rescue Institute has warned of rough seas, heavy swells and big surf due to the recent Southern ocean storm and tail-end of the full moon spring tide.

Bathers, anglers, paddlers, boaters, beach walkers are urged to be cautious. 

Please stay out of the sun during the heat of the day and drink plenty of water, especially when exercising or working outdoors.

In this hot weather, please be extra cautions when starting a fire for braaing, lighting a candle or paraffin lamp. Avoid making fires when there is a high fire index and when conditions are favourable for a veldfire. The ground and plants are very dry and even a small spark, if it lands on the right spot, can have catastrophic consequences.
