Unprecedented floods in Zimbabwe are set to worsen with flood waters now unable to drain into reservoirs and dams that are already at capacity. Agricultural communities in the north west of the country, at the confluence of the Musengezi, Hoya and Mukumbura rivers, have already been ravaged by the worst floods in two decades, fueled by torrential rains in the up-stream highlands. Now flood waters have begun flowing back into the region from the already overflowing Cahora Bassa reservoir down-stream in Mozambique, and are not expected to subside until mid-March at the earliest.
