Three people have been killed due to floods in Mituge district (Cabo Delgado province) as of Monday, December 30.

Severe infrastructure damages have also been reported. Authorities have issued a flood warning for the area.

Advice

Individuals the affected areas are advised to monitor local weather reports, anticipate transportation disruptions, avoid areas directly affected by flooding, confirm road conditions before setting out, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
