December 2018 Report: Early season floods in Mangochi
The rain season in Mangochi and around MOET in the month has unfortunately started very strongly with a number of areas flooded and houses submerged. In Mangochi alone and close to MOET, a total of 128 households have been destroyed by floods which all happened by the third week of December. Although the area is prone to floods, experts are saying these have started early this year as usually the area is subjected to huge amounts of rain in late January and in February. The picture shown was taken on the road which is at a distance of less than 50 metres from the MOET campus. You can clearly see the floods as the trees are submerged.
Luckily, the MOET campus is not affected at this time.
