“BOARDWALKS in both Jeffreys Bay and Cape St Francis were broken by the strong surf.

“The ocean also breached the Seekoei Lagoon between Aston Bay and Paradise Beach, which eventually led to the causeway being submerged and closed to traffic as a safety measure,” he said.

“The car park at Ann Avenue at St Francis Bay was damaged but mostly required cleaning, which the municipality was able to sort out on the day of the assessment.”

He said an inspection of the spit at the St Francis canals was also carried out and that it was clear that a significant amount of sand had been stripped off the beach and sand dune.

No damage was reported along the Gamtoos River and Oyster Bay coastlines.
