Cyclone Idai, worst storm to threaten Mozambique in years, to make landfall
Thursday, 14 March 2019 JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A powerful hurricane threatening to rip through Mozambique's second largest port with winds of over 190 kilometres per hour is expected to make landfall late on Thursday, South Africa's Weather Service said. Cyclone Idai is set to hit Mozambique and Malawi with strong winds and heavy rain, high seas and storm surges, dumping more water and destruction on areas where scores have already been killed and tens of thousands displaced by floods over the past week. In a tweet, the weather service said the storm is expected to hit land on Thursday evening within 60 kilometres of Beira, the country's fourth largest city, bringing "life-threatening" storm surges of 3-4 metres, rising to 5-6 metres in a river running from the port city to Zimbabwe
