Kenya and Tanzania are on high alert as they anticipate the arrival of Cyclone Hidaya, following a period of relentless rains and devastating floods that have ravaged East Africa.

The region has already witnessed the loss of nearly 400 lives, with tens of thousands displaced from their homes.

Cyclone Hidaya is gradually approaching the eastern coast of Tanzania, with meteorologists predicting its landfall later on Friday, based on the latest weather forecasts.

The cyclone is expected to bring further precipitation to neighbouring Kenya, including the major coastal city of Mombasa, situated just north of the cyclone's path.
