Mozambique braces for ‘worst-case scenario’ storm

People living in one of Mozambique’s largest cities have been warned to expect the “worst-case scenario” as a major cyclone makes landfall. Cyclone Idai, which is carrying winds of up to 225 km/h is making landfall near the port of Beira.A storm surge of at least six metres is expected near low-lying Beira, a city of 500,000 people.

Heavy rains have already killed about 100 people in Mozambique and Malawi. Beira is the fourth largest city in Mozambique and its major port sits on the mouth of the Pungwe river, that runs to Zimbabwe. The surge could be even higher because of high tide.
