Mozambique: Tropical Cyclone Idai, Update I
Mozambique: Tropical Cyclone Idai
Tropical Cyclone Idai made landfall on the city of Beira, central Mozambique on 14 March. Sustained winds of up to 185km/h and torrential rains affected Sofala, Zambezia, Tete and Manica provinces, and brought widespread destruction across parts of Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe. In Mozambique, Cyclone Idai affected 1.85 million people and killed over 600. More than 200,000 houses, classrooms and facilities have been destroyed, and road infrastructure has been severely damaged, hampering humanitarian access to the affected population. Flooding and poor WASH conditions are particular concern, leading to health needs after an outbreak of cholera was reported and cases of malaria continue to increase. The impact on food security and livelihoods will affect the population in the long term, due to extensive damage to crops prior to the March-April harvest, as well as loss of seeds, tools and commodities normally available at markets. ?
