Damaging winds and veld fire conditions expected in the Eastern Cape

The South African Weather Services on Tuesday morning said that damaging winds and veld fire conditions are expected in most parts of the Eastern Cape throughout the day. 

According to the weather office, these winds will be most damaging in areas of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality, Kouga Local Municipality and Koukamma Local Municipality.

The interior of the province will also experience these potentially damaging winds up to the northern borders of the province.

Meanwhile, veld fire conditions are expected over the north eastern interior of the Eastern Cape.

Thus, residents in areas like Barkley East, Maletswai and Elundini, are advised against starting open fires.
