Mozambicans seek shelter as storm Freddy makes landfall
Mozambicans took shelter as tropical storm Freddy made landfall in a coastal town, with heavy rain expected to batter the country’s southern provinces for several days.
The situation was calm two hours later, with no casualties reported although trees and rooftops had fallen, said Vilankulo district administrator Edmundo Galiza Matos in a statement.
He said in the statement that 183 people had taken shelter there.
The storm should weaken over the next few hours, but heavy rainfall will continue to pose a threat over the next few days in southern Mozambique and south eastern Zimbabwe, said Meteo France.
