Thousands of Tanzanians have deserted their homes in the coastal town of Mtwara over fear of being swept away by the dreaded Cyclone Kenneth which is set to make landfall on the night of Thursday, April 25.

Antonie Beleza, deputy national director of Mozambique's Centre for Emergency Operations, said the centre had been telling people for days to move out of 17 at-risk districts.

Ahead of the Category 4-equivalent tropical cyclone that is now bearing down on the coast of northern Mozambique's Cabo Delgado Province, violent winds caused landslides, flash flooding and cut off roads in the Indian Ocean archipelago nation of Comoros, known locally as Comores, Agence France-Presse reported.

According to weather monitoring services, Tropical Storm Kenneth may bring "life-threatening weather" with wind speeds of up to 105 miles per hour to northern Mozambique, the Comoros Islands and Tanzania over the coming days.

"We've already evacuated 30,000 people from the areas likely to be hit by the cyclone".

"Wind in excess of 200km/h is expected with heavy rain and flooding as well as storm surge along the coast", said the SA Weather Service. "Because of the effects of the winds, the structures of the gas-research companies are under threat" and infrastructure may be damaged, Mr Tembe said.

Cyclone Idai's effects will be felt for months, if not years.

He added that while Cyclone Kenneth appears to be weaker than Cyclone Idai, it remains unsafe in part because of the poverty of northern Mozambique. The UN already had expressed concern that its $342m aid appeal for what will be months of Cyclone Idai relief work in Mozambique and neighboring Zimbabwe is just 24% funded. Looking at its position, it's far north of Mozambique.
