THE Meteorological Services Department (MSD) says that heavy rains are expected in most parts of the country starting on Wednesday, 13 February extending to Saturday, 16 February.
Some areas are expected to receive rainfall in excess of 50 millimetres in just 24 hours.
A statement released by the MSD says: “In some places on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 February, parts of Manicaland, Matabeleland South, Masvingo Provinces, as well as southern areas of Midlands Province are forecast to receive heavier rains in excess of 50mm in 24 hours.
“Thereafter, the rains should steadily ease off giving way to bright and showery conditions in most areas, and localized heavier falls in places.
“Where possible, move from such areas. Try to avoid being caught outdoors or on the road during heavy storms, more so at night when flood dangers are more difficult to perceive.”
The Department will continue monitoring the conditions and update the public accordingly.
The public is also being requested to provide feedback or information on disasters.
