While, Mozambican emergency services say it fears more people could be displaced in that country following the destruction of tropical storm Dineo, back home, the South African Disaster Management Centre says the storm has had no impact yet and says it's just good rain.

The storm has brought heavy rain and winds of up to 160km/h, raising the risk of flooding and crop damage.

Henry Muller posted tongue-in-cheek, that despite the welcomed 90mm of rain that fell, 10mm was also measured in their house. Dineo was downgraded to a tropical depression by 08:00pm yesterday and renamed "ex-Dineo", according to SAWS, which warned that the weather system could still cause heavy rainfall and flooding as it heads inland toward South Africa. It is especially vulnerable after a major drought previous year as soils degraded or hardened by dry spells do not easily absorb water.

If need be, they could also respond to affected areas in Mpumalanga, Limpopo and even KZN.
