Description of the event

Flooding increased significantly since beginning February 2007. The National Institute for Disaster Management (INGC) declared a red alert on February 4 for the Zambezi River basin. Other rivers in Northern Mozambique were expected to flood in the following days. The roads to Mutarara were cut off.

Officials at all levels warned populations living along the Zambezi River about the rising water, and urged people to move to higher ground. The National Water Directorate (DNA) and INGC estimated between 50,000 and 300,000 people displaced.
