UPDATE 7: George Municipality commences mop-up operations and damages assessments

The George Municipality’s service and technical departments this morning have begun mop-up operations and damage assessments following the high spring tides that hit the area over the past weekend.

Community Services, Electrotechnical Services, and Civil Engineering Services are working together to assess the damage to municipal properties and infrastructure. The municipality is unable to provide an estimate of the rand value of the damages at this stage, but it is believed to be in the millions of rands.

The George beaches, Herolds Bay, Victoria Bay, Leentjies, and Wilderness remain closed until further notice and access is currently restricted by law enforcement teams. The municipality is working hard to resolve the situation and will keep the public informed of any updates as they become available.
