66 Dead In Malawi As Cyclone Freddy Crushes Through Southern Africa

Malawi and Mozambique experienced the overwhelming impacts of Cyclone Freddy, perhaps of the most grounded hurricane at any point kept in the southern side of the equator. So far, at least 66 deaths have been reported.

Over the weekend, Freddy ripped through Southern Africa for the second time in a month, bringing with it torrential rains, landslides, and the loss of phone and power signals, making it difficult for rescue efforts.

In just four weeks, Mozambique has received a year’s worth of rain, and aid organizations from the United Nations predict that the downpours will exacerbate the worst cholera outbreak in Malawi’s history.
