Cyclone Gombe 'Most Likely' Not Coming To Zimbabwe - MSD
Tropical Cyclone Gombe is most likely not going to hit Zimbabwe, the Meteorological Service Department has said.
The cyclone made landfall in Mozambique on Friday leaving 11 people dead in the country and at least 7 more in Malawi.
MSD forecaster, Benjamin Kwenda, said the Met Department was monitoring the cyclone but indications are that the storm will not affect Zimbabwe. Said Kwenda:
So far, from the trajectory, Cyclone Gombe, which is in Mozambique, is not coming to Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe is most likely not going to be hit by Cyclone Gombe.

We will be monitoring the situation but we would like to advise the public that Cyclone Gombe is most likely not going to hit the country.
Last month, the MSD projected that six more cyclones were likely to hit Zimbabwe during the remainder of the current rainy season.
Tropical Cyclone Gombe is the second cyclone after Tropical Cyclone Batsirai, to hit other neighbouring countries, without affecting Zimbabwe.
Tropical Storm Ana, which hit parts of Manicaland in January and caused flash floods, is the only violent low-pressure system to have affected the country this rainy season.
