Tropical Cyclone Chalane Hits Mozambique Channel

Tropical Storm Chalane has reached the Mozambique Channel and meteorological services said it is expected to intensify overnight, making landfall in central Mozambique. Chalane could hit areas of Sofala Province - affected by Cyclone Idai nearly two years ago - bringing heavy rains and winds, and subsequent flooding. After crossing Mozambique, the weather system is projected to move towards Zimbabwe, where heavy rains are expected. The civil protection unit in Zimbabwe has started evacuating people in the eastern parts of the country, who are most vulnerable to Chalane.
