AS Cyclone Chalane is moving steadily westward, good rains have already started pouring down over large parts of Namibia.
Heavy rain over the northern half of Namibia has been reported since Monday, where 100 millimetres has been measured.
The Otjozondjupa the Kavango East regions have been benefitting the most from the deep low-pressure system over Namibia and Angola since the start of the week but the system that is carrying the moist air has moved south.
The main road between Keetmanshoop and Mariental has been inundated with flood water for the second time in less than two weeks after heavy downpours occurred in the area.
On Wednesday afternoon residents of Windhoek and the surrounding areas also reported that good showers are pouring down and that the small rivers in town have already started flowing.
Windhoek North, Elisenheim, and Brakwater all received strong downpours which cause visibility on the road between Windhoek and Okahandja to diminish. South of Windhoek places like Rehoboth and Malthohe also started to report light rain showers.
Further north heavy cloud has been building up over paces like Outjo and Otjiwarongo while rain has been falling sporadically at places like Otavi, Grootfontein, and Tsumeb.
