Residents warned as tropical cyclone Idai intensifies over Mozambique

More than 140,000 people have been displaced by the storm.

The death toll from the flooding in Mozambique has risen to ten. Cyclone Eline, which hit the country in February 2000 when it was already devastated by its worst floods in three decades, killed 350 people and made 650,000 homeless across Southern Africa.

At least 126 people have been killed in Mozambique, Malawi and South Africa as heavy rains hit southeastern Africa over the past week, affecting more than one million people, officials said.

"Sixteen accommodation centres have been opened in the provinces of Zambezia and Tete to accommodate the displaced", Comoana said. More than 168 000 hectares of crops were destroyed, the government spokeswoman added. The authorities have to say that this life-threatening storm surge flooding might put coastal communities underwater where Idai made landfall.

A light aircraft has been dispatched with a team of specialists to Malawi to establish the exact humanitarian assistance required. Flood water and food which has been in contact with flood water is not safe. However, access has been damaging due to extensive damage to roads.

Residents in central Mozambique were on Thursday bracing for a tropical cyclone described as "extremely dangerous" by weather experts, with imminent landfall expected near the port city of Beira, which has a population of about 530,000 people. Almost 1.6 million people are estimated to live in areas that could be impacted by high wind speeds ( 120km/h), according to the latest analysis from UNOSAT. The experts have to say that on entering Zimbabwe this Cyclone Idai can either be a storm or can even weaken into a Deep Depression which still would give heavy rains, wherein the windspeed will be exceeding 80-100 kmph. The latest projections indicate that Idai may then turn back east and re-enter the Mozambique Channel, potentially going on to impact southern Madagascar.
