The Uganda National Meteorological Authority (UNMA) has warned about heavy rainfall, extreme temperatures expected until next week.
According to the Dekadal Agromet [10 or 11 Day period] Bulletin released by UNMA on November 10, it is anticipated that more rains will be experienced between November 11 and November 20.
Kampala Capital City Authority has identified Mulwana Road, Industrial Area, Meat Packers, Port bell, Mukwano near the Kibuli Police Barracks, Kanywankoko in Kitintale, areas near Lugogo Mall, and Kasanga-Ggaba as flood prone areas.
The bulletin also stated that parts of northern Uganda like West Nile, Acholi and Lango sub-regions will be warmer or hotter than the rest of the country with maximum temperatures ranging from 28 to 32 degrees Celsius.
To that effect, farmers with livestock have been advised to store water for the future.
The communities in areas expected to receive heavy rainfall have been advised to devise ways to avoid stagnant water around homes.
