The Emergency Planning Department would like to inform the public that it is forecast for St Helena to experience a north-westerly swell from Sunday, 17 February, through to the evening of Monday, 18 February 2019.

This may result in a large sea swell and breakers in James and Rupert’s Bays.

The public is advised to use caution when accessing the Seafront area. To avoid damage to vehicles, drivers are also asked to take care when parking near the safety rails.

Due care and attention should be taken when swimming in James and Rupert’s Bays during this time.
