When the devastating fires started in Cape Town a few days ago i asked on social media if anyone has drone footage and the replies were a very obvious “it’s too windy to fly and the smoke makes visibility low”. That and the fact that it may be too hot and could interfere with helicopters in the area dropping water. Makes sense. Some drone pilots though did get footage of the damage caused by the fires over the Silvermine area.
Here’s the footage.
Extensive areas burnt, but like one botanist said, the fynbos needs fire and will regrow even more plentiful than before.
