    “Localized power and communication interruptions can also be expected.” 

    LEVEL 2 WARNING FOR DAMAGING WINDS IN THESE AREAS

    The SAWS also warned that the strong winds might also enhance the risk of localised runaway fires.

    “Localised disruption to beachfront activities, while difficulty in navigation can be expected for vessels at sea.” 

    It advised the public to stay indoors, where possible, away from the windows that open to the severe winds. 

    “Be aware of the following: – sudden crosswinds if traveling, especially between buildings, fallen trees or power lines, and flying debris. Ensure that all temporary structures are well anchored.”
