While all beaches in Nelson Mandela
Bay Municipality remain open, the Metro has issued a warning to all beachgoers
to be cautious around the beachfront areas as the damaging waves as predicted
by the SA Weather Service will persist until midnight on Sunday, 17 September
The disruptive weather resulted in access being blocked in some beaches and the Metro is still assessing the damage caused in some of its beaches.
NMBM Sport, Recreation, Arts and Culture, Portfolio Head, Cllr Bassie Kamana said the mop up operation started on Sunday morning following the notable damage on Saturday.
"Everyone should be careful along the coastal area. Our teams including life guards are on the ground to ensure safety around our beaches. But we really warn residents not to swim today, the weather conditions are not friendly. We will have a meeting on Monday morning to assess the extent of the damage caused but our teams already started this morning cleaning the parking areas that were affected by the waves," he said.
