Cape Town - Rough seas, high waves and rip currents expected over the next few days have prompted Cape Town’s Disaster Risk Management Centre to warn people to be extra cautious at the coast.

"Very rough seas with wave heights greater than 4m are expected between Cape Point and Port Alfred on Monday," read a press release issued on Sunday night.

"The City urges bathers in these areas to only go to beaches where there are lifeguards on duty and to swim only within the demarcated safe swimming areas."

In the event of a life- or property-threatening emergency, the public are requested to dial 107 from a land-line or 021 480 7700 from a cellphone.

    "the public are requested to dial 107 from a land-line or 021 480 7700 from a cellphone." I think they cocked this one up in typical news24 style

      Oh dear, George. Quick to point fingers are we? You really don't understand how these services work do you? New24 doesn't employ reporters and sub-editors like newspapers do. They subscribe to a number of stringers and news services like SAPA (as you will see tailing the story you are so quick to criticize). They don't check the accuracy or content. It's not what they do. Like all other news media, the just publish the story along with the byline so that those who read the soty, know where the bugger-ups come from.
