Malawi: Seasonal Cyclone Freddy has hit the East African country of Malawi, causing severe damage in the southern part.
Malawi’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Climate Change issued a statement saying, ‘There will be heavy flooding in southern Malawi. Widespread damage was caused by Cyclone Freddy yesterday.
The death toll from the seasonal Cyclone Freddy that ravaged Africa has exceeded 350 and hundreds are missing, with the situation worsening in southern Malawi, with many areas flooded and roads and bridges cut off.
Over 330 Malawians have died from the cyclone.
Malawi, Zambia & Zimbabwe were once 1 country, we are one people.
Zambia has sent search and rescue planes to help Malawians, that is leadership.
In times of crises, that is when we expect to see leaders emerge.
Well done Zambia. pic.twitter.com/KhexGkKm3v
