At least 1 killed as cyclone strikes Mozambique again:


Cyclone Freddy displaced hundreds of people as it battered central Mozambique on Sunday after making landfall for a second time in a month, breaking records for the duration and strength of tropical storms in the southern hemisphere. Communicat­ions and electricit­y supply in the storm area have been cut so the extent of the damage and number of casualties were not clear. At least one person was killed in Quelimane on Saturday when his house collapsed. “The wind was very strong into the night ... There is a lot of destructio­n, trees fallen down, roofs blown off,” Guy Taylor, a UNICEF official, told Reuters by satellite phone from Quelimane. “It’s potentiall­y a disaster of large magnitude, and additional support will be needed.”
