MOzambique after the rain?

Hello

We going SA to Malawi via Moz in 2 weeks. Having trouble getting news on the road conditions up there. Any news? Last time i went into Malawi from Beira and the road was ok but not great. I guess a flood could change that.
Zim is not an option for us...

Thanks
Jim

Roads were not damaged.

Hi

Just a few words of good news out of Moz. The flooding along the Zambezi (into its floodplain, no less) was due to rains a thousand kilometres away and in fact Favio dropped relatively little rain. Most of Moz is in fact experiencing lower than usual rain and the main roads were not affected at all. Still a stretch of potholes for 90km north from Maxixe.
