Tropical Storm Eloise To Hit Madagascar Within 24 Hours - MSD

The Meteorological Services Department (MSD) has warned that a tropical system is brewing in the Indian Ocean, north of Mauritius and could affect Zimbabwe in the next few days.

In a statement on Monday, MSD said Eloise is currently a tropical storm and is expected to weaken when it makes landfall over Madagascar in the next 24 hours. The statement read:

The tropical system named Eloise is not yet a tropical cyclone (is developing). It is currently a moderate tropical storm, to the north of Mauritius.

It is expected to make landfall over Madagascar in the next 24 hours and decrease in intensity before it re-emerges in the Mozambique Channel on Thursday evening 21 January 2021.

The trajectory (the path the system will take), as well as the intensity (strength of the system), may vary greatly during this period and thereafter.

Barely a month ago, Zimbabwe escaped a tropical cyclone after Chalane weakened to a tropical storm when it made landfall.

Meanwhile, the MSD recently warned that tropical cyclones and serious floods remain a real danger in the second half of the 2020/21 rainy season.
