Hundreds of deaths and thousands displaced
The devastating Tropical Cyclone Freddy which has devastated southern Africa in a rare second landfall has killed at least 216 people in Malawi and Mozambique, with the death toll expected to rise.
Heavy rains that triggered floods and mudslides have killed over 200 people in Malawi, authorities said on Tuesday. President Lazarus Chakwera declared a “state of disaster” in the country’s southern region and the now-ravaged commercial capital, Blantyre. Some 12,000 people in the south of the nation have been displaced, according to Malawi’s disaster management directorate.
One Nation teams are already in the affected area and are delivering emergency aid parcels consisting of food, water and other emergency items.
