Tropical cyclone leaves parts of Mozambique under water, kills over 200

Mozambique’s president declared three days of national mourning on Wednesday as the southeast African country struggles to recover from a powerful cyclone that has claimed hundreds of lives, submerged villages and washed away homes.

Tropical cyclone Idai made landfall near the port city of Beira late last Thursday and slowly moved inland over the weekend, carving a trail of destruction across central Mozambqiue, southern Malawi and eastern Zimbabwe. The storm brought heavy rainfall and wind gusts of up to 105 miles per hour to the region, where bone dry conditions gave way to massive flooding.

As the scale of devastation widens, aid agencies said it might be the worst cyclone-related disaster ever in the Southern Hemisphere.

  1. Massive destruction has occured for poor people of Mozambique making them home free and food free…We must play all our roles for providing them with basic needs ASAP…Great USA for sending help as death toll cross over 1000 as big cyclone has just demolished everything…May Allah keep us safe from such diasters and give us power and strength to help our brothers living under open sky….

  2. FYI to those that wondered how climate change would ever be our greatest national security threat…you know the thing y’all laughed at Obama for saying. Well as this happens more and more frequently in these regions the people will migrate to parts of the world that can sustain a better future. This will happen here in a micro version when people in south Florida have to move inland. Imagine that on a global scale. You think you have an immigration problem now? Lol …figure out how to walk and chew gum at the same time because climate change should be a top priority always.
