Cyclone massive flooding has ravaged Mozambique and killed 446 people nationwide, according to official statistics.
The people of Beira which is the most affected area, are still coming to terms with the deadly effects of the storm, which destroyed the area around the coastal town, leaving most houses ruined or damaged.
Mozambican Prime Minister Carlos Agostinho do Rosario told reporters on Monday that while the worst excesses of the flooding had been contained, the country, with Beira topping the list, was still reeling under the challenges of this massive disaster.
Do Rosario said 293 people had died in the last three days while 345 had been displaced. He added that some 1511 were either hospitalised or receiving treatment from mobile medical teams courtesy of the Southern African country’s government and aid agencies.
Meanwhile, the Mozambican government says at least 500 victims of the cyclone nationwide have been driven beyond the border into three neighbouring countries – Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe.
