Weather experts have warned the nation of possible heavy rains due to the formation of a new Tropical Storm Gombe over the Indian Ocean.
According to Lucy Mtilatila, Acting Director for the department of Climate Change and Meteorological the storm which is currently overland on Madagascar and is moving westwards, was detected four days ago in the Indian Ocean.
Mtilatila has told the press that the storm is likely to cause heavy rains in the country on Friday as it will be making its landfall in Mozambique on the same day.
However, the Director has said it is monitoring the situation saying, at its current position, the storm does not have any impact on the country’s weather pattern.
Meanwhile, the department is advising people living in flood prone areas to be cautious and follow daily weather updates.
