The Moderate Tropical Storm “Cheneso” is already in the central region of the Mozambique Channel since this Monday and, due to the magnitude of its effects, the National Institute of Meteorology has issued a red alert. The presence of the storm is already felt along the coastal districts of the provinces of Zambézia and Nampula and the authorities are calling on the population not to make a sea crossing. According to a statement from the National Institute of Meteorology (INAM), the system is moving towards the southwest of the Mozambique Channel at a speed of 6 kilometers per hour, and could evolve into a Severe Tropical Storm in the next few hours. However, as a result of uncertainties in its trajectory projections, the probability of reaching the country’s coast remains low. Meanwhile, INAM predicts the occurrence of strong winds of up to 80 kilometers per hour and gusts of up to 110 kilometers per hour, which could agitate the sea and generate waves with heights of up to 6 meters between parallels 14 and 22 degrees south. Additionally, INAM predicts the occurrence of heavy to very heavy rains (more than 200 millimeters in 24 hours) accompanied by severe thunderstorms. (Marta Afonso) Source: Carta de Moçambique
