Rainfall activity is expected to increase across Zimbabwe with the Meteorological Services Department yesterday warning of floods in low-lying areas. In a statement yesterday, the Met Department said some areas would receive rainfall in excess of 50mm in 24 hours. The department warned people against crossing flooded low lying bridges. It urged farmers who are into tobacco farming to make sure that their crop is insured against hailstorm damage.
Weather experts said those in low lying areas should move to higher ground if they notice that their area is becoming flooded. They also warned against taking shelter under trees during thunderstorms.
