Winter storm hits central coast – no damages

The winter storm that played havoc in many parts of the Western Cape this week hit the Namibian coast yesterday. By mid-day yesterday the rough seas had peaked, but contrary to initial expectations no damages were reported. Many Swakopmund residents waited patiently at some developed areas which usually take a pounding during stormy seas, including the Tiger Reef Beach Bar, the Jetty and the new Platz am Meer Waterfront – but nothing major transpired. Many had predicted a swell of over five meters and warned residents to be careful.
