Cape Town - The South African Weather Office has warned residents of the Western Cape that gale force winds will continue in the province for at least the next two days.

According to the official site, winds of up to 65km/h can be expected between Cape Columbine and Cape Agulhas on Friday and Saturday.

There was also a warning about high veldfire danger in the Cape Winelands for Saturday.

Die Burger reported that winds of 100km/h and 120km/h raged through the Mother City on Thursday and printed pictures of a woman being blown over while others had to hold onto poles and lamps to keep from falling over.

Apart from the gale force strength of the wind, there was also a warning of sudden powerful gusts of wind.

    Stellenbosch is being battered. Branches lying in the road and winds strong enough to rock cars
