(By Edwin Mbulo in Sesheke)
A THUNDERSTORM on Monday left a trail of destruction in Sesheke district. The storm blew some buildings’ roofs and brought down a Zesco pole, leaving the town without power for several hours on Monday. The heavy rains, coupled with strong winds and lightening, hit the town for at least over an hour.
The Zambia Meteorological Department (ZMD) said the country was under the influence of moist and unstable airflows from the north-east and north-west, leading to an increased cloudy conditions and showery activities in some areas. The ZMD said as of today, Eastern, and the eastern districts of Lusaka, and Central provinces were expected to be mainly sunny, hazy, windy and hot becoming partly cloudy and very hot by afternoon.
“The rest of Zambia [will be] partly cloudy and warm to hot becoming cloudy with a chance of showers by afternoon. The night will be partly cloudy and warm to mild,” stated the ZMD.
