At least 107 people have been killed and more than 200,000 displaced as Tropical Storm Freddy returned to Mozambique and Malawi. The storm has caused widespread flooding in both countries, leading to widespread destruction of homes and infrastructure.
In Mozambique, at least 67 people have died, while in Malawi, at least 40 people have died. More than 200,000 people have been displaced in Mozambique and Malawi due to the storm, according to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
The storm has caused extensive flooding in both countries, with some areas of Mozambique being submerged in up to two metres of water. In Malawi, the Shire River, which runs through the country, has burst its banks, causing further destruction.
The government of Mozambique has declared a state of emergency in the country, and is appealing for international aid. The Mozambican government has also requested assistance from its neighbours, with the South African government sending a team of experts to assist the Mozambican government in its relief efforts.
The United Nations is also providing assistance to the affected countries, deploying teams to assess the damage and needs in the affected areas. The UN is also providing relief supplies to those affected by the storm, including food, water, tents, and other essential items.
The storm is expected to continue to affect the region in the coming days, with more flooding and destruction likely.
