A man was swept off rocks in Hermanus and despite an extensive search he is missing after being hit by a wave during the Full Moon Spring high tide.

In Knysna the NSRI sea rescue base has been flooded causing damage but the sea rescue station remains operational and on high alert.

‘Big sea swells brought in by a series of cold fronts together with the Full Moon Spring Tide has resulted in dangerous sea conditions around our coast and extreme caution is advised particularly to anglers fishing from shore, boaters, paddlers, bathers and we urge the public not to venture along harbour walls where waves could sweep over harbour walls,” said the NSRI in a statement.
