Cyclone Kenneth has made landfall in northern Mozambique with wind speeds of over 200 kilometres per hour. The government has already evacuated 30,000 people from areas likely to be affected.
Weather forecasters have predicted severe rainfall and waves five metres higher than usual. More than 680,000 people are at risk according to officials.
Food supplies are prepared and relief efforts are already being deployed in Palma and Mocimboa da Praia as it braces for the storm.
Cyclone Kenneth hit Mozambique just six weeks after Cyclone Idai devastated central parts of the country.
