Heavy Rains, Wind Destroy Houses, Schools In Karoi

Heavy rains and winds have destroyed homes, churches and a hospital in Karoi. Several households were left without shelter after the torrential rains in the past few days.

Reports indicate that the most affected area is Chikangwe High-density suburb and the most affected people are widows and single mothers. A single mother who spoke to Newsday, Sarudzai Mudimu, said that the asbestos roof was blown off her house and she has to seek for accommodation from neighbours.

Hurungwe district administrator Peacemaker Muzenda, who is also the district civil protection unit chairperson said

I can confirm what has happened in Karoi. Currently, we do not have statistics of the affected households and we cannot give an evaluation of how much damage has been done. We are planning to have those affected accommodated at schools that are secure while we work on modalities.

Several parts of the country have experienced violent thunderstorms this season. The heavy rains are often triggered by high temperatures which trigger convectional rainfall.
