LOWER SHIRE FACES FLOODS THREAT

The Ministry of Water and Sanitation has issued a warning about rising water levels in the Shire River, which might trigger the occurrence of floods in the Lower Shire if rains persist.

Given this, the Department of Disaster Management Affairs (DoDMA) is advising communities in the Lower Shire to take precautions to save lives and property.

Speaking to MBC, DoDMA’s Spokesperson, Chipiliro Khamula, said communities must immediately move to safer and higher areas and avoid crossing flooded rivers.

“The department is treating the warning with urgency and apart from alerting councils we have made standby arrangements for the deployment of a search and rescue team comprising the Malawi Defence Force (MDF), the Malawi Police Service (MPS) and the Marine Department,” said Khamula.
