Kruger National Park makes provisions for Dineo

Kruger National Park makes provisions for Dineo

The Kruger National Park is taking precautionary measures as  tropical storm Dineo approaches.

Forecaster Wayne Venter says, “She is going to move along the Limpopo river and with the rainfall especially in the southern parts of Zimbabwe and Botswana, that still has to go through into the Limpopo river, so we still have all that water coming through so that’s probably going to push the river levels quite high.”

Two of the park's camps have been evacuated, and gravel roads inside the park have been closed. 

The storm has killed seven people in Mozambique and already displaced 130,000 people, EWN reports.

South African National Parks (SANParks) spokesperson William Mabasa says; “We have been having rain since yesterday, nice soft rain which we really needed, up until this morning. We did however as a precautionary measure close all the gravel roads in order to make sure people are safe.”

Weather Service forecaster Puseletso Mofokeng says; “The wind speeds are still very much strong we have an average of about 50 kilometres per hour, gusting to about 65 kilometres per hour, but here in Gauteng we have about 30 kilometres per hour generally, but it will gust at about 40 kilometres per hour.”
