Luanda — The National Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics (INAMET) has forecast for the coming 24 hours bad weather in seven provinces of the country, with pouring and 20 to 50 milimetres rains and thunders.

The information is contained in a weather forecast bulletin that reached Angop on Monday, announcing that the provinces are those of Cabinda, Zaire, Uíge, Bengo, Luanda, Kwanza Norte and Malanje (north), where there will also be rains with strong winds of 40 to 60 kilometres/hour speed.

According to the source, the above weather condition will be influenced by a system of low pressures associated with a mass of hot tropical air.

INAMET recommends precaution and security to avoid incidents, especially for families living in risky areas like those near mountain, water streams and rivers.
