Mozambique: 7 Killed, Thousands Displaced After Mozambique Cyclone

If the storm reaches Mozambique it would be the most severe tropical cyclone to strike the island since Jokwe in 2008 a cyclone that killed 13 people and displaced thousands more

The channel is located between the country of Mozambique on the African mainland and the island nation of Madagascar.

About 6%, 3% and 10% of population of Vanuatu living inside wind speed zone of 120 km/h, 90 km/h and 60 km/h accordingly.

"The main reason (for the alert) is the approaching of the tropical cyclone Idai, an intense cyclone that requires monitoring measures and caution, because as predicted, strong winds and thunderstorms represent a high risk for people and properties", said government spokesperson Ana Comoana. Idai was moving to the southwest.

Although some uncertainty exists for both the timing and location of the system, guidance from La Reunion indicates that it will make landfall near the Beira area.

"This unsafe and powerful cyclone could pose an extreme risk to tens of thousands of people in Mozambique".

On March 12 the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite provided a visible image of Tropical Cyclone Idai. Note the purple region (250 to 350mm) indicated over the central parts of Mozambique in a 24-hour period.

As Idai moves inland, flooding downpours will spread throughout the interior of central Mozambique and into eastern Zimbabwe from Friday into this weekend, said AccuWeather.

Depending on its intensity and trajectory, Cyclone Idai could also exacerbate the situation in southern Malawi where more than 115,000 people have been affected by severe flooding.

The department therefore advised the general public to continue following weather updates issued from time to time by the department of climate change and meteorological services as it continued to monitor weather development over the country to ensure seamless use of weather information on all timescales by the public and to be kept safe from any weather related threats.
