0 501

At least 14 people have died, seven in Madagascar and seven in Mozambique following a tropical cyclone.

Report says the number of people affected by Cyclone Freddy has also risen to 383,000 – 226,000 in Madagascar and more than 163,300 in Mozambique.

“Even though the intensity of Cyclone Freddy was not as much as we expected, hundreds of thousands of people are in need of humanitarian assistance. Recovery will take months,” the World Food Programme’s representative in Madagascar, Pasqualina Di Sirio, said.

Meanwhile, flooding is unlikely in south-eastern Zimbabwe as cyclone Freddy did not extend as far inland as previously forecasted.
