  1. Betty’s Bay is a disaster area. Many more homes than the just the 28 reported have been damaged and some have burnt completely to the ground. Greatest damage is in the area between Harold Porter Botanical Gardens and Sunny Seas. On day 11 of the fire the North Westerly wind wreaked havoc on our town and fanned fires to such a degree that it seemed like the air was on fire. Emergency evacuations were ordered. We are completely shattered by the sheer loss. Currently there are still some active small fires that have been contained. There is no electricity or water supply to the town as all major infrastructure has been damaged.

  2. Appreciation to all individuals/government and municipal parties, NGO’s and volunteers who participate to fight the fire ?
