"There is a low-pressure system that could develop into a tropical storm," warns INAM

Mozambique's National Meteorological Institute (INAM) is warning of the possibility of a low atmospheric pressure that has formed near Madagascar developing into a tropical storm over the next few days.

In a statement issued on Saturday, INAM said that the system had formed to the north-east of the island, in the south-west Indian Ocean basin, with the potential to develop into a Moderate Tropical Storm from tomorrow, January 23rd.

"However, it does not yet constitute a danger to the Mozambique channel or the continental part of our country," reads the INAM note, adding that it is monitoring the evolution of this system and tropical cyclones.

In the meantime, the institution is appealing to the population to "continue to follow the meteorological information and warnings issued by the competent national authorities".
