    Default Northern Moz/Tanzania weather warning: Cyclone Kenneth

    Cyclone Kenneth is due to make landfall on Thursday.

    This is likely to make Idai look like a light shower.

    I'd modify my travelling plans if I were going that way.

    This made me go read a little on previous ones close to home. My first memory of something like this was Domoina in 84. 950mm between RBay and Sodwana. The amount of water this may deliver over the next 5 days is mind boggling. 2 inches of rain is pretty much what we can handle, imagine 20x that amount.

    In March 2018 i started a thread Vakansiestories, hoping more stories would be added, alas not.

    I mentioned a cyclone we experienced 31 Dec 2006 to 1 Jan 2007. One cannot imagine the intensity of such storms, ours apparently was a Cat 3 storm, but wind noise was like the start of a Formula One race, with demons screaming at top of their voices, rain in buckets

    I really feel sorry for the guys in Moz
