The Hermanus Space Weather Warning Centre (SWWC) on Sunday said a large solar flare was currently being experienced in South Africa. The solar flare would result in higher radiation levels from the sun.
SWWC’s forecaster Kobus Olckers said people should be careful when they go outside.
“People must wear high sunscreen factor at the moment or preferably go shopping,” he said.
