Currently a massive cloud of smoke hangs over Port Alfred, Kenton and Bushmans with some residents reporting smog as far as Alexandria and Cannon Rocks. A strong wind is pushing the smog deeper across the region.
So far no fires have been confirmed in the area, but locals are asked to be please alert and contact the Ndlambe Fire Department if flare ups are spotted.
