More than 42,000 people could be affected by natural disasters in Maputo province during the rainy season just starting, the National Institute for Disaster Management (INGC) says.
Risks include floods, strong winds and intense heat.
Provincial INGC head for Maputo Wilson Manhique says the figure features in a contingency plan that will be presented to Maputo provincial government soon.
“We are currently finalising the contingency plan for government approval. By 2017/2018, we are talking about normal rains, which tend to be above normal,” Manhique said.Source: Folha de Maputo
