Un­prece­dented 2nd cy­clone hits Mozam­bique

The Tribune (SLO) - - Insight -

The sec­ond pow­er­ful cy­clone to rip into Mozam­bique in just six weeks stunned res­i­dents Fri­day in a re­gion where such storms had not been recorded in the modern era. Three deaths were re­ported from Cy­clone Ken­neth and the U.N. warned of “mas­sive flood­ing” ahead.

Ken­neth had max­i­mum sus­tained winds of 136 mph, equal to a Cat­e­gory 4 hur­ri­cane, be­fore mak­ing land­fall late Thurs­day in north­ern Mozam­bique, the Joint Typhoon Warn­ing Cen­ter said. It was the first time in recorded his­tory that the south­ern African na­tion has been hit by two cy­clones in one sea­son.
