At least 437 people in southern Africa are dead in the aftermath of Cyclone Idai, with numbers expected to rise. Rescuers say they are finding more bodies as floodwaters recede. Mozambique: 242 confirmed deaths Zimbabwe: 139 confirmed deaths Malawi: 56 confirmed deaths
This is terrifying. Cyclone Kenneth is growing rapidly and headed for Mozambique. It's been barely more than a month since Cyclone Idai hit Mozambique -- triggering the worst weather disaster in Southern Hemisphere history. Kenneth will worsen an already horrific tragedy.
1.85M people in Mozambique are in urgent need of humanitarian aid one month after Cyclone Idai. Thousands of people are still cut off by flooding and destruction. The disaster: - killed 1,000+ people - destroyed 200K+ homes - flooded an area the size of Luxembourg
An estimated 900,000 children in Mozambique have been orphaned, separated from their families, made homeless, or otherwise affected by Cyclone Idai, officials say. That's half of the 1.8 million people impacted overall.
Cyclone Idai is the worst weather disaster to ever hit the Southern Hemisphere, says the UN: - Hundreds dead in Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi - Flooded areas 30 miles wide in Mozambique - Officials estimate over 1,000 dead in Mozambique - 2.6 million people affected by flooding
