According to SAWS, an intense weather system will result in strong gale force south-east to easterly winds (60-70km/h gusting 80-100km/h) between Saldanha Bay and Plettenberg Bay.

The warning comes after several municipalities in the Garden Route District have been affected by severe weather conditions since Sunday, November 21. The Western Cape’s Disaster Management Centre has also offered its support following the ongoing storm in the Southern Cape and the Garden Route by initiating a Joint Operations Committee to assist those residents affected.

According to reports, heavy flooding and some storm damage continue to surface following heavy rainfall that’s continuing in the region. Disaster Management spokesperson for the Eden District, Wouter Jacobs told Cape {town} Etc that all municipalities within the district are currently busy with mopping up operations after several suburban roads were affected by the flooding.

“We have got several major passes that are still closed, like the Swartberg pass and the Montagu pass that is still closed. All our national roads are open after we did some intervention when we mechanically breached the Touws River and the Swartvlei River’s estuaries,” Jacobs explained.
