Cape Town -

Strong winds that toppled over heavy goods vehicles in the Western Cape were expected to continue on Saturday, the SA Weather Services said.

Warnings of gail force winds were issued for Friday and were expected to continue into Saturday.

Western Cape traffic chief Kenny Africa said the four trucks were toppled over by the strong winds on Friday.

“These were big trucks and they were fully loaded too...it was really strong winds,” he said.

Africa said the toll road between Paarl and Worcester was still closed off as officials were still trying to remove the trucks.

No injuries were reported. - Sapa
