Fire Rages in Cape Town’s Deep South

Firefighters are still trying to extinguish the blaze which is burning in the Far South.

According to a report from City of Cape Town Fire and Rescue Services spokesperson Theo Layne, the fire started on Sunday afternoon in Muizenberg and has spread all along the mountain slopes to Noordhoek.

He says four helicopters were deployed on Monday morning as most of the flames are inaccessible to ground staff.

“Several properties in the Noordhoek and Sun Valley area have been damaged in the fire and at this point we are trying to keep the rest of the properties safe. The fire has already stretched to De Goode Hoop Estate.”

South Peninsula Subcouncil chairperson Felicity Purchase says two of the properties affected are in Steenberg Estate and two in the Far South.

“I have been on the scene all morning and these are the only properties I know of. Noordhoek Manor was also evacuated and we have moved residents to Nerina Gardens, False Bay Hospital and the NG Kerk in Fish Hoek,” she says.

She confirms that Ou Kaapse Weg, Chapman’s Peak and Boyes Drive are closed.

Motorists are now using Main Road but several residents have reported major delays.

Simon’s Town residents report a travelling time of 1.5 hours between Fish Hoek and Kalk Bay.

New Load Shedding App

New Load Shedding App

load shedding appNo more confusing PDFs, no more outdated schedules that are almost as frustrating as the power outages themselves – News24 has developed a nifty app that allows you to check exactly when your neighbourhood will be hit by load shedding.

The free web application, Grid Watch allows users to type in their suburb name, and will then churn out an easy-to-understand schedule that shows when your area is set for a power outage, depending on what schedule (Schedule 1, 2, 3A, 3B) Eskom is operating on at the time.

The best part? The app will show you schedules for the next two weeks.

The news site reportedly has plans to develop the app for Android and iOS, so you can check it out on the go.

 

New Load Shedding Schedule

New Load Shedding Schedule

The new schedules below are designed around the days of the month and reflect Eskom’s decision to implement loadshedding nationally on a regular basis and over weekends. They replace the previous schedules, which were designed around days of the week and were applicable for occasional loadshedding during peak demand times.

Loadshedding stages depend on the extent of the shortage of generation capacity to meet the country’s electricity demand, with stage 1 being the least serious, and stage 3b being the most serious.

Loadshedding outages generally last for about 2,5 hours, with one area being affected at a time during stage 1 and four areas being affected at a time during stage 3b.
