Tropical Storms – Roundup of Tropical Storms:
In the Southern Hemisphere: Tropical cyclone (tc) 18s (Idai), located approximately 318 nm north-northeast of Europa Island, is tracking southeastward at 03 knots.
Southeast Africa – A tropical disturbance that formed over the Mozambique Channel earlier this week has moved inland over Mozambique and brought days of heavy rain to neighbouring Malawi as well. While the area of low pressure did not intensify, it continued to spread heavy rain across much of the already saturated regions of central Mozambique and southern Malawi. News reports from Chikwaw, Malawi confirmed at least 6 deaths due to floods, mostly near swollen rivers. Southern Zambia also saw some relief from the rain as the disturbance helped break the ongoing dry spell.
