Tanzania coastal areas to be hit by heavy rains this week

By Emmanuel Onyango

HEAVY downpour is expected from this week along the Coast Region of Dar es Salaam, Tanga, Pemba Islands and Zanzibar Isles, the Tanzania Meteorological Agency (TMA) has warned.

TMA’s Director General Dr. Agness Kijazi said the expected heavy rains results from strong inter-tropical convergence zone in these areas which keeps on rotating at a particular time and period.

This is a wakeup call to the people residing in valleys to vacate their areas which become badly affected during the rains causing loss of lives and properties, she said.

Two weeks ago, heavy rains pounded the city of Dar es Salaam for three days consecutively causing the loss of at least 12 lives.
