The United Nations says humanitarian aid agencies have prepositioned supplies for the impact and aftermath of Cyclone Kenneth but assessing damage in the Comoros where Kenneth hit en route to Mozambique is proving difficult.
Tropical Cyclone Kenneth, which is headed to the northern regions of Mozambique, has been upgraded to a Category 4 storm.
A powerful cyclone was set to make landfall in northern Mozambique Thursday, barely a month after a super-storm slammed into the country’s centre, leaving hundreds dead and causing devastation.
The South African Weather Services says Cyclone Kenneth which is expected to hit Tanzania and Mozambique this week, will not affect South Africa.
Another tropical cyclone is expected to make landfall on the coast of Mozambique on Thursday, just over a month after the powerful Cyclone Idai struck the country’s port city of Beira, killing hundreds of people.
