The Tanzania Meteorological Authority (TMA) has predicted the possibility of heavy rains in eight regions of Tanzania that could cause flooding in some areas.
The regions are Kigoma, Tabora, Katavi, Rukwa, Mbeya, Songwe, Iringa and Njombe.
Speaking today Sunday, November 15, 2020, TMA analyst Joyce Makwata said the rains are expected to fall within 24 hours in those regions where citizens are required to take precautions.
Makwata said the rains would make some residential areas surrounded by water and roads impassable.
He said locals should take action especially those living in the valleys and regularly monitor TMA reports
