Brace Up For A Storm – MSD

The Meteorological Services Department has warned of an impending storm starting today, the Herald reports. According to the publication, Manicaland, Matabeleland South, Masvingo and southern areas of Midlands could be the most seriously affected.

MSD also warned of hail, strong winds and lightning accompanying the heavy rains which are expected to be over 50 millilitres in some parts of the country.

According to the publication:

The rains will be accompanied by strong winds, lightning, hail and flash flooding.The uprooting of trees and damage to infrastructure cannot be ruled out.

Drains may fail to cope in urban or built-up settings while visibility may be compromised, especially for drivers, during the heavy downpours.

Insecure home roofs, schools and shopping centres could be blown off by strong winds while asbestos roofing could be perforated by hailstones in some instances, potentially endangering occupants.

The 2019/2020 rainy season is coming at a time when the country has been ravaged by a drought that killed over 110 elephants at Hwange National Park and over 9000 cattle in some parts of the country.
