A 55-year-old Bindura school headmistress died at Bare Primary School in Chiweshe on Thursday after a huge tree fell on her vehicle as she sought shelter from a violent storm.
ZBC News reports that another school official, Clever Mutema was seriously injured and ferried to a local hospital.
Since the beginning of the current rainy season, a number of accidents attributed to weather conditions have been reported.
In October last year, two people sustained minor bruises when a whirlwind blew the roofs off two classroom blocks at Gomoza Primary School in Lupane where they were waiting to apply for national identity documents
One of the classrooms was being used as a temporary registration centre by a team from the Civil Registry Department.
Lupane East legislator Mbongeni Dube (ZANU PF) said the school was appealing for funds and materials from well-wishers to be able to repair the damaged buildings.
The ZETDC, a subsidiary of the Zimbabwe Electricity Supply Authority, the local power utility, claimed in October last year that strong winds had affected some electricity transmission infrastructure hence the prolonged power cuts in the country.
In a public notice, ZESA said it was sorry for the increased power outages and pledged to restore power in affected areas in the shortest period possible.
