The rain will cause flash floods that will lead to flooding, especially in Shire Valley.

However, the department has said the storm is not as strong as Cyclone Ana and has asked residents to stay calm.

Meanwhile, DCCMS has sent warning messages through the District Commissioners of Chikwawa, Blantyre, Nsanje, Thyolo, Chiradzulu, Neno, Mulanje and Mwanza as well as some parts of eastern region.

The storm, which originated from the Indian Ocean, made landfall in Madagascar and will reach Malawi through Mozambique.

DCCMS says it is monitoring the situation and promised to keep the country updated.
