A moderate storm expected to hit Madagascar on December 5 and 6 will not affect the north of Mozambique, the National Meteorology Institute (INAM) advised.
According to Acácio Tembe, a spokesman for the INAM, the low-pressure system that may evolve into a tropical storm has a trajectory threatening neither Cabo Delgado nor Nampula.
“At this moment this system is not a danger to the Mozambique Channel as well as to our national territory. Reassure people, especially people living in the northern region of the country that this system is not a concern and will not be able to reach our country,” he explained.
In the meantime, an area of showers and thunderstorms continues to become better organized to the north of Madagascar. If this tropical threat were to reach moderate tropical storm status, the name Ambali would be given to the storm.
