Authorities in Tanzania have advised people in southern coastal regions to move to safer ground ahead of the expected arrival of a cyclone.
Cyclone Kenneth is predicted to also hit neighbouring northern Mozambique with winds of up to 200km/h (124 mph) and torrential rain.
Residents have been told to expect damage to their houses and farms.
Mozambique is still reeling from Cyclone Idai which killed hundreds of people and left thousands homeless.
The storm made landfall near the port city of Beira on 14 March, packing winds of up to 177 km/h and bringing torrential rain which caused extensive flooding.
