The large fire that started in the early hours of the morning above Tábua has already spread to the upper parts of Ponta do Sol, and can be seen from Calheta.
The wind is very strong on the east side of the island, and some flights have had to have a second go at landing, and rain has also started. I hope the wind on the west is not as strong and they can get this fire under control.
