Weeks after Cyclone Idai devastated Mozambique another cyclone has hit. At least 30,000 people have thus far been evacuated from northern parts of Mozambique that have been hit by cyclone Kenneth.
This is the second cyclone to make landfall in the country in just over a month. Cyclone Kenneth started over the Comoros Islands a day before, where three people were killed.
On Thursday evening, it made landfall on the north coast of Mozambique close to Pemba city with wind speeds equivalent to a Category 4 hurricane. While Kenneth is not as strong as cyclone Idai, it’s caused some flooding and storm surges.
More than 900 people died when Idai brought devastation to Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe. At least three million people were left in need of humanitarian assistance.
Meanwhile flooding in Durban, South Africa has left several people dead. The death toll in the flash floods that struck KwaZulu-Natal over the Easter weekend is expected to rise above the current confirmed figure of 67.
Emergency services continue the search for the bodies of people swept up in flood waters or caught up in the mudslides that followed the heavy rains experienced over the weekend.
The total number of accidental deaths in the Province over the Easter weekend has been put at 85, including the 13 killed in a church that collapsed on worshippers over Easter.
