Aron Hyman brings you the latest on the Cape Storm, which claimed at least eight lives on Wednesday.
The massive winter storm in Cape Town made its presence known with high winds, and the Atlantic Ocean was already surging onto land before high tide hit this afternoon.
The South African National Defence Force (SANDF)‚ as a member of the National Joint Operations Centre (NATJOC)‚ has placed a South African Air Force (SAAF) Oryx Helicopter and a crew on emergency-standby to assist the Western Cape Provincial Disaster Management agencies with any emergency evacuations where it might be required in order to safeguard the lives of the citizens of the Western Cape Province.
