Tropical Cyclone Idai has brought torrential rain and flash flooding to parts of Mozambique. Over 100 people have been killed and 500,000 have been displaced. The high winds and heavy rainfall are expected to move over southern Malawi and Zimbabwe.

Storms have taken place for over a week, causing rivers - notably the Buzi River - to break their banks. The flooding has damaged power supplies and communications, leaving many people with electricity. The flooding has also affected water supplies.

With an estimated 5000 properties being submerged and large swathes of cropland destroyed, authorities have ordered mandatory evacuations of flooded and flood prone areas.

The city of Beira - capital of the Sofala province - and Buzi town have been particularly affected by the storm. Idai made landfall near Beira with winds as strong as 177 km/h and it is feared that Buzi may be entirely submerged by flood waters.

Reports indicate that the flood waters in Mozambique reach 6 metres in some areas.
