Cyclone Funso remains a category 4 storm but is heading in precisely the right direction to miss Mozambique and Madagascar - much to the relief of both these poverty stricken countries. Rainfall is now predicted to be heavy but remain offshore for the coming few days which is of equal importance. Unusually two cyclones have formed in the Mozambique channel in the last couple of weeks - not only early in the cyclone season but also in a location which is normally at the end of storm tracks rather than the begining.

A further depression is organising to the north east of Madagascar in a more recognise storm generation zone and this could develop into the ninth cyclone of the season within the next few days - it is already looking as though this system will track across the north of Madagascar.
