Mozambique’s National Institute of Meteorology (INAM) on Tuesday said Tropical Storm Dumako could reach the Mozambique Channel on Wednesday.
The storm was expected to negatively impact maritime navigation in the region between latitude 14 and 20 degrees south, with stormy winds. INAM said:
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 appealed to the population to continue to monitor meteorological information and warnings issued by authorities.
Tropical Storm Dumako is expected to bring heavy rains to the provinces of Nampula in the north of the country, and Zambezia and Sofala in the centre.
The heavy rains will be characterised by severe thunderstorms and strong winds.
