Tropical storm Ana has killed 34 people in Madagascar and two in Mozambique, while leaving most of Malawi without power in recent days, according to authorities in the three countries. AfricaNews reports that the storm, which formed in the east of the large island of Madagascar, triggered heavy rains that caused flooding and landslides in the capital Antananarivo. After crossing the Indian Ocean, the storm, which the UN says has the potential to affect “highly vulnerable populations who have already recently suffered from natural disasters and conflicts in [the north of the country],” hit northern and central Mozambique. The system is though forecasted to weaken as it moves predominantly westward during the next few days.
