Late this afternoon it seemed as though the storm in the South Peninsula had abated, while some parts of the Western Cape are still experiencing the severe storm.
Cape Talk host John Maytham spoke to EWN reporter Natalie Malgas who says some blue sky was visible in the South Peninsula's Noordhoek area.
It does seem at least in the deep South, as though the storm is over. We are seeing a little bit of some sun shines and some blue sky.— Natalie Malgas - EWN reporter
She says when they came around Cape Point, however, the storm was still in full force and the wind and swells were picking up substantially.
At least eight people have been reported killed as a result of the heavy storm that hit the province.
We also notice City of Cape Town disaster vehicles, several police vehicles and heavy duty vehicles to pick up some debris in the streets.— Natalie Malgas - EWN reporter
