Boat owners in Port Alfred urged to remove boats

Owing to flooding, NSRI Port Alfred  has been requested by the City Disaster Management to urge boaters and boat owners on rivers in the Eastern Cape Ndlambe area to remove their boats, moored on the river, from the water safely and quickly.
Juan Pretorius, NSRI Port Alfred station commander, says: “If for any reason, the execution of this request presents a danger to life or limb, boaters and boat owners are urged not to put themselves in harm’s way and abandon the effort to remove their boats from the water. Flooding of rivers in the Ndlambe area is present.
“Damage as a result of flooding has been caused to boats, quays and property. The regional help line telephone number for Disaster Management in the Port Alfred, Eastern Cape, Region is 046-6241111.”
