In the past few days South African Weather Services (SAWS) reported that countries like Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Swaziland and Limpopo (northern and eastern parts) will experience heavy rain caused by a new cyclone storm called Eloise.
The heavy rains started on Saturday, 23, and Mozambique started experiencing the Eloise the cyclone and the floods started spreading to the other mentioned provinces. However, the whole Limpopo province didn't experience extreme flooding but the people in Tshukuma village in Venda, Vhembe district, experienced the floods.

In Swaziland, Mbabane, the floods hit hard and people in the farms were hit the hardest as seen in the picture. The caption reads: " My brother in our farm in Swaziland saving irrigation pipes from the floods😭😭😭."
The man in the picture is attempting to save irrigation pipes rather than saving his own life and the water length is reaching his torso. This is a dangerous water length according SAWS. People should try to keep safe from such floods as they can be swept away or get injured from sharp objects.
Keep safe at all times! Thank you for reading my article.
