At least 100 people dead, 200 missing as cyclone hits Mozambique and Zimbabwe

Over 100 people have lost their lives and many more are missing in Mozambique and neighbouring Zimbabwe on Sunday after tropical cyclone hits the southern African nations with flash floods and ferocious winds.

Authorities in Zimbabwe said the toll there had risen to 65 in the east of the country, while Mozambique said 48 people were killed in affected central areas, after the cyclone tore across the region on Friday and Saturday.

Member of parliament for Zimbabwe’s Chimanimani district gave the updated toll and added that scores remain missing, after houses and bridges were washed away by flash floods when the storm slammed the area.

The most affected areas are not yet accessible, while high winds and dense clouds have hampered military rescue helicopter flights.
“So far we looking at 65 people that have lost their lives. We are looking at probably 150 to 200 people missing,” Joshua Sacco, lawmaker for Chimanimani, told AFP by phone.
Majority of those unaccounted for might be government workers, whose housing complex was completely engulfed by raging waters.
“We are very worried because all these houses were just suddenly submerged under water and literally washed away and that is where we have about 147 missing. It’s very sad and the situation is dire” he said.
Two pupils at a secondary school were among those killed, after a landslide sent a boulder crashing into their dormitory, the country’s Department of Civil Protection (DCP) said.
