CYCLONE DINEO, NOW A TROPICAL DEPRESSION, MOVES INLAND TO BOTSWANA

JOHANNESBURG, The South African Weather Service (SAWS) says the depression which began as Tropical Cyclone Dineo which hit Mozambique last week has now moved to Botswana, as expected.

While crossing South Africa, it also brought heavy rain to parts of the provinces of Limpopo, Mpumalanga and KwaZulu-Natal and SAWS forecaster Dipuo Tawana said Sunday that most of South Africa would continue to experience rain this week.

Although Dineo lost its power before reaching South Africa, more rain is expected this week in most parts of the country, especially in Limpopo and central parts of the country. It is likely to be wet this week nationwide, said Tawana.

“There are places which recorded lots of rain, for instance in Kranskop, which received about 166 millimetres per day,” said Tawana.

Cyclone Dineo hit many residential areas in the southern part of Mozambique, leaving seven people dead, including a toddler.

Houses and infrastructure were destroyed, and more than 700,000 people were displaced by flooding.
