WEATHER WARNING: COLD, WET AND WINDY CONDITIONS ON 25 - 26 MAY 2023
The combination of very cold, wet and windy conditions may result in the loss of vulnerable livestock and crops. The occurrence of loadshedding may result to more people being vulnerable, since their bodies might not retain their heat especially the weak and frail. Along with additional fires created for warmth and the strong winds across the province; this may result in fire hazard and thick smog particularly in informal settlements.
The public and small stock farmers should be advised that loss of vulnerable livestock and crops can be expected due to the combination of very cold, windy and wet conditions. The weak and frail may also be vulnerable, since their bodies won't be able to retain their heat as easily.
