Mozambican weather authorities say a tropical storm, which is likely to turn into a cyclone, is expected to hit the mainland through the northern province of Nampula. BBC reports that the authorities warn more than 500,000 people in central and northern regions could be affected, including displacement by floods, damaged properties, and loss of crops – with many expected to need shelter, food, and clothing. The storm is expected to land in Nampula on Monday, lasting in Mozambique until Thursday.
