Tropical storm Dineo 'has had no impact' in SA yet

Tropical cyclone Dineo left a trail of destruction in its path as it hit the northern coast of Mozambique‚ before making its way to Maputo and parts of South Africa.

Along with the havoc wreaked by tropical storm Dineo, Mozambique has also been hit by a cholera epidemic, with 216 confirmed cases of the diarrhoeal disease and one death in three cities, radio station VOA Portugues reported on Thursday. The tropical cyclone has been downgraded to a tropical depression after losing energy and intensity as it moved overland overnight.

Heavy rain has also been falling in Limpopo.

Zinyemba said people in the affected regions should stay in safe places and avoid venturing outside their hamlets or low-lying areas.

Mozambique was battered by high winds, flooding and sea surges when cyclone Dineo made landfall late Wednesday but the storm has begun to die down, according to meteorologists yesterday. Emergency services, provincial teams and government remain on high alert and warned against crossing rivers as there is a great risk of flash flooding.

The Mozambican government said the situation was less severe in Gaza province and its capital Xai-Xai, halfway between Maputo and Inhambane.
