Thousands of people are still suffering from the flooding and destruction caused by one of this year’s worst tropical storms in Africa.

Tropical cyclone Idai has caused tremendous devastation and loss for the people of Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi.

More than 200 people in Mozambique have been confirmed dead, Mozambique President Filipe Nyusi told journalists on Tuesday.

While Idai is already being counted as one of the deadliest tropical cyclones to hit southern Africa, the potential damage and danger from floods following the cyclone’s torrential rains could make its impact even worse.
