The United Nations will grant Mozambique and the Comoros Islands $13 million in emergency funds to help provide food and water and repair damage to infrastructure, the organisation said late on Sunday, after the second cyclone in a month slammed into the region.
Tens of thousands of people in the far north of Mozambique are bracing for violent flooding as torrential rain pushes up water levels, after the death and devastation wrought by Cyclone Kenneth.
Officials in Mozambique say serious flooding has begun in the north of the country following Cyclone Kenneth which hit the region on Thursday killing five people.
Thousands of people in remote areas of storm-lashed Mozambique were homeless Saturday and bracing for imminent flooding, food and water shortages as Cyclone Kenneth flattened entire villages, leaving rescuers struggling to reach them.
The number of people killed in Mozambique by Cyclone Kenneth rose to five on Saturday (April 27), two days after it smashed into the country’s northern coast, according to the United Nations.
