Mozambique: Death Toll Rising in Mozambique Flooding Crisis
The MSD said Tropical Cyclone Idai is expected to take a north-westerly direction moving further inland and reaching some parts of the country. At least 66 people have been killed in Mozambique, 45 in Malawi and four in South Africa following torrential rains that have triggered flash floods.
She spoke to reporters late on Tuesday after a cabinet meeting in Maputo to discuss the emergency.
Cyclone Eline, which hit the country in February 2000 when it was already devastated by its worst floods in three decades, left 350 dead and 650 000 homeless across southern Africa.
In Mozambique, 111 people have been injured, 18 hospitals destroyed, 938 classrooms destroyed and 9,763 students affected. Not only this, over 168 000 hectares of crops have been destroyed in Mozambique alone.
Almost 17,100 people are estimated to be displaced in Zambezia, Tete and Niassa, who are sheltering in 15 transit centres, and almost 12,500 houses are reported to have been destroyed.
Mozambique is prone to extreme weather events and as the storm approached, the coastal city of Beira was hit by winds of more than 170 kph, the National Meteorological Institute said, with Radio Mocambique reporting several homes had been destroyed and roads cut off. The Civil Protection Unit evacuated more than 700 people who were marooned by floods in the district.
Flooding in Malawi and Mozambique had affected almost 843,000 people and caused at least 60 deaths as of 11 March, according to preliminary reports from the respective Governments.
"The government needs 1.1 billion meticais ($16 million) to assist 80,000 families affected by the rains".
