Looking to the heavens The cast and crew of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! are about to be confronted by ex-tropical Cyclone Dineo a heavy storm front that could bring 120km  h winds and flash flooding

News about the whereabouts of ex-cyclone Dineo has been circulating on WhatsApp, terrifying people with the news that "Dino will hit South Africa tonight".

Cyclone Dineo has killed seven people since it hit Mozambique on Wednesday, reports eNCA.

Cyclones are characterised by heavy rains and violent storms that can leave trails of destruction.

The two provinces have a chance of receiving 80% of rain over the next 24 hours.

Dineo has been downgraded from a cyclone since it landed in Inhambane, southern Mozambique, on Thursday, when winds destroyed 20,000 homes and displacing more than 130,000 residents.

Mozambique is especially vulnerable to flooding following a major drought a year ago.

Head of National Disaster Management Mmaphaka Tau said no disaster incidents were reported in Mpumalanga as well as Limpopo although heavy rain was experienced over night.

Heavy rains have fallen in Limpopo and up to 200mm in the affected areas.

The South African Weather Service has sent out a warning saying rainfall could reach more than 50mm.

The Mozambican government said the situation was less severe in Gaza, which has the popular resort town of Xai-Xai as its capital and is near the border with South Africa.

However, the government said it feared flooding in the area due to the torrential downpour.

Subsistence maize farmers recovering from last year's El Nino-triggered drought are also at risk.
