Tropical Cyclone Eloise may have already passed over the country but Mozambique’s relief agency, the National Institute for Disaster Risk Management and Reduction, has warned that more than 30,000 people may be affected by flooding in the next two days in the southern Gaza province, attributing the flooding to the overflow of the Limpopo and Shingwedzi rivers due to heavy rains caused by the Cylone. Almost 7,000 people have already been displaced and more than 5,000 houses destroyed or damaged in the country’s Sofala province, and the adjacent Buzi district, the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said, citing preliminary government figures, while national emergency response teams have confirmed six deaths and 12 serious injuries — numbers expected to rise as the scale of the damage is fully assessed.
