Mozambique Cyclone

Mozambique is reeling in the wake of devastating Cyclone Idai. This storm struck the southern coast of Africa last week, bringing catastrophic flooding. Many homes are still submerged in the floodwaters. Hundreds of thousands are displaced, and the death toll in Mozambique is rapidly rising. Government officials expect the death toll to exceed 1,000. United Nations experts say Cyclone Idai is one of the most devastating weather-related disasters to ever hit south of the equator.

Many of those affected by the flooding were already living in severe poverty. Now they face overwhelming needs. Homes have collapsed and crops have been destroyed. Water-borne diseases could become rampant.
