Harare - At least 100 people are missing in parts of eastern Zimbabwe
hit by the peripheral effects of tropical cyclone Idai which has lashed
Mozambique, a local lawmaker said Saturday.

Thousands of people have been affected, power cut off and major bridges
flooded in parts of the Manicaland province which borders Mozambique.

"The information we have so far is that over 100 people are missing and
some of them" may have died, Joshua Sacco, a member of parliament in
Chimanimani district, told AFP.

"At least 25 houses were swept away following a mudslide at Ngangu
township in Chimanimani urban. There were people inside. They are part
of the missing," he said.

Tropical Cyclone Idai will make landfall in Mozambique later this week
with flooding rains, damaging winds and storm surge just days after the
system spawned deadly flooding in the country and neighboring Malawi.

Default Over 1,000 feared dead after cyclone slams into Mozambique

Over 1,000 feared dead after cyclone slams into Mozambique
Full story: http://the-japan-news.com/news/article/0005616577

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — More than 1,000 people were feared dead in
Mozambique four days after a cyclone slammed into the country,
submerging entire villages and leaving bodies floating in the
floodwaters, the nation’s president said.

“It is a real disaster of great proportions,” President Filipe Nyusi said.

Cyclone Idai could prove to be the deadliest storm in generations to hit
the impoverished southeast African country of 30 million people.

It struck Beira, an Indian Ocean port city of a half-million people,
late Thursday and then moved inland to Zimbabwe and Malawi with strong
winds and heavy rain. But it took days for the scope of the disaster to
come into focus in Mozambique, which has a poor communication and
transportation network and a corrupt and inefficient bureaucracy.

This image made available by International Federation of Red Cross
and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) on Monday shows an aerial view from a
helicopter of flooding in Beira, Mozambique.

Speaking on state Radio Mozambique, Nyusi said that while the official
death toll stood at 84, “It appears that we can register more than 1,000
deaths.”

Emergency officials cautioned that while they expect the death toll to
rise significantly, they have no way of knowing if it will reach the
president’s estimate.
