Over 1,000 feared dead after Cyclone Idai slams into Mozambique

More than a thousand people are feared to have died due to cyclone Idai that devastated Mozambique last week. Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi said in a nationwide address that 84 deaths have been registered officially, but more than 1,000 deaths could be registered. He said more than 100,000 people are in danger.

The city of Beira in central Mozambique bore the full wrath of Cyclone Idai on Thursday.  The storm unleashed fierce winds and flash floods and washed away roads and houses. Beira international airport was closed because of cyclone damage but later reopened. In neighbouring Zimbabwe, Idai left 98 dead and at least 217 are missing, according to the information ministry.
