The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) is monitoring a mysterious situation on the KZN south coast.
"Numerous" eye-witnesses reported an unidentified flying object crashing into the sea on Saturday.
The mysterious object that "crashed" into the sea behind the breaker-line off-shore of Port Shepstone High School about 12:20 on Saturday, has raised a frenzy of interest worldwide.
"They saw smoke and water exploding. Some even saw flames.
"Some reported seeing an unidentified object splash into the sea causing a ripple of waves," said Lambinon.
"A reliable source, who was on a hill overlooking the sea about 2km away, said he saw something crash into the sea.
"The object trailed smoke behind it, and even after it had crashed the column of smoke hung in the air for several minutes.
"It caused a big splash when it hit the water and bobbed up and down," said Lambinon, quoting one of the witnesses.
The search for an unidentified object which crashed into the sea at Port Shepstone on Saturday has been put on hold because of rough weather conditions, the National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) said on Monday.
"The search was called off on Sunday and will only resume once the sea is calm. At the moment the sea is not conducive to diving," said NSRI Shelley Beach Station Commander Eddie Noyons.
