It is estimated that the cyclone could produce wind speeds of 160 kilometres per hour.

"At current rate, Cyclone IDAI is projected to reach Zimbabwe on Sunday 17 March, causing significant rainfall in Masvingo, Mash East, mash Central and Manicaland. This will increase risk of damage to homes and infrastructure. Residents of these areas are urged to be vigilant." The Ministry said.
