Cape Town Disaster Management says a six year old girl has died after a tree fell on top of her last night in the Strand.

The tree was one of several that fell over as a result of stormy weather that hit Cape Town late yesterday.

The city has been hit by thunder, lightning and gale force winds.

Cape Town Disaster Management’s Wilfred Solomons-Johannes said the girl died at Broadlands in the Strand.

Meanwhile, the national sea rescue institute has cautioned boaters not to launch to go to sea, unless it is absolutely necessary.

NSRI spokesperson Craig Lambinon, says gale force winds in Cape Town up the East Coast, peaked at 130km/hour last night and continue to exceed 100 km/hour.

“The NSRI are urging anyone at sea on any kind of vessel should wear their life-jackets at all times while at sea,” said Lambinon.
