President lays down 15-day deadline for plan to end mining pollution in Manica
Mozambique National Meteorology Institute (INAM) forecasts heavy rains in the next 15 days for all of the central provinces which could affect the population living in the lower part of the Zambezi Valley.
In view of the risk of floods, high winds and lightning, INAM recommends that people move away from risk, flood-prone areas.
The rains slowed down a bit throughout the country during the current week. But the situation may change over the next two weeks in the provinces of Sofala, Manica, Zambézia, Tete and Niassa where heavy rains and lightning are expected.
The concern is heightened given the the fact the flows of rivers such as Buzi and Pungue are above the alert level, and may leave families livig in the low regions without a home.
Meanwhile, in the north and south of the country, where the rains will slow down, the temperature could reach 33 degrees.Source:
