BBC Weather reports that Cyclone Kenneth could be worse than Cyclone Idai as it is expected to be the strongest cyclone ever recorded to make landfall in this region.

Cyclone Kenneth is predicted to hit Tanzania and Mocambique bringing winds of up to 200km/h (124 mph) and torrential rain.

In contrast, Cyclone Idai made landfall near the Mozambican port city of Beira on 14 March, packing winds of up to 177 km/h and bringing torrential rain which caused extensive flooding.

More than 700 people were killed in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe and at least three million were left in need of humanitarian assistance.

Unfortunately, in Zimbabwe, the authorities have not agreed on the path which will be taken by the cyclone with the Meteorological Services Department (MSD) saying that Zimbabwe will not be affected while the Civil Protection Unit (CPU) is arguing that parts of the country will be affected.
