The coastal Madagascar town of Mananjary was largely destroyed after Tropical Cyclone Batsirai, aid workers said on Saturday, as more relief supplies arrived by plane. Doctors without Borders said in a statement that their teams had visited the town and found it “largely destroyed”. “The hospital is no longer functioning, five health centres are completely destroyed in the area and the roofs of 35 other structures have been blown off. Meanwhile, the AFP news agency reports that the town of Nosy Varika, about 100 kilometres north, is only accessible by sea. The town’s hospital was destroyed, and electricity has yet to be restored. This as 120 people are now reported to have been killed by the Cyclone.
