Malawi to brace for more heavy rainfall

By: Vincent Gunde

The Department of Climate change and Meteorological Services in the Ministry of Natural Resources , Energy and Mining says following the heavy rains that the country has been receiving over the past few days, the country should brace for another wave of heavy rainfall.

The Department says the heavy rainfall is expected over most areas in Malawi as from Sunday 5th to 9th January, 2020 due to the presence of a deep low pressure in association with an active Inter Tropical Convergence Zone ( ITCZ) currently oscillating over the south and central areas of the country.

This is contained in a severe weather warning released by the Department’s Director, Jolamu Nkhokwe saying the heavy rains are expected to be associated with strong winds, lightning and trigger floods in low lying and flood prone areas.

The Department says due to already very heavy rainfall amounts that the country already been receiving, has caused flooding in some areas of the centre and lakeshore areas during the past days causing logs and damages to property.

It says the anticipated heavy rains which will be accompanied by strong winds and lightning are also likely to increase area coverage that are likely to experience floods leading to further damage and loss of property, and endanger lives of people.

The Department further says in order to secure property and lives, the public is being advised to take precautionary measures such as moving to higher grounds when water levels have started rising, avoid crossing flooding rivers and not seeking shelter under trees and weak infrastructures.
