Tropical Cyclone Ida claimed many lives in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, and Malawi, leaving massive devastation and countless homeless. The whole region has suffered widespread flooding and created massive devastation.
The President of Mozambique has said, “a humanitarian disaster of great proportion.”
The government of Mozambique said that the confirmed death toll was 200. And around 100,000 people need to be urgently rescued near Beira.
The province’s aerial survey shows a 50km (30 miles) stretch of land was under water. This happened after the Buzi river’s banks were burst.
Manuel Rodrigues, the governor of neighbouring province Manica, said that there is an urgent need to rescue people who are still trapped.
The Zimbabwean government says 98 people have been killed and more than 200 are missing.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa said that the government was conducting rescue missions and delivering food (to help the victims of Cyclone Idai).
