Diamond FM Zimbabwe reports that Chief Meteorological officer for Manicaland Lucas Murambi says Tropical Cyclone Idai is only expected to arrive in Zimbabwe later tonight.
Mutasa District and other northwestern parts of Manicaland are the highest risk areas although the cyclone could change direction at any point.
Earlier today, a windy thunderstorm swept through Mutare, blowing off the roof at Sakubva Musika.
Locals were of the view that Idai had touched down. However, the worst is yet to come.
