Destructive record-breaking cyclone batters Malawi, Mozambique twice

An unrelenting Cyclone Freddy that is currently battering southern Africa has killed at least 190 people in Malawi and Mozambique since it struck the continent for a second time on Saturday night, authorities in both countries have confirmed.

The commercial hub of Blantyre in Malawi was the hardest hit district and severe flooding and rains have broken roads and bridges, hampering relief operations.

The flooding and rains have hit rescue operations and made it difficult to get relief to those affected, aid agencies said.
