The tropical storm Dumako could reach the Mozambique Channel Wednesday and affect maritime navigation in the region between latitude 14 and 20 degrees south, with stormy winds, Mozambique’s National Institute of Meteorology (INAM) announced Tuesday.
“The low-pressure system, formed in the Indian Ocean and evolved into a moderate tropical storm stage and was named Dumako, and it could evolve into a severe tropical storm,” INAM said in a statement, appealing to the population to continue to monitor meteorological information and warnings issued by authorities.
It is expected that the system’s approach will bring heavy rains to the provinces of Nampula in the north of the country, and Zambezia and Sofala, in the center, accompanied by severe thunderstorms and strong winds, predicted the institute.
Although #Dumako is only expected to reach Mozambique around Friday, rains being drawn towards the system may have already begun to have affected Mozambique, Malawi and Zambia from today (Tuesday). 2/2

If #Invest96s becomes a cyclone and intensifies, models indicate it will become the fourth cyclone to strike Madagascar in two months – possibly as the 2nd major cyclone.
