Tropical Cyclone Batsirai killed at least 10 people in southeastern Madagascar, after making landfall on 5 February, bringing heavy rains and strong winds.

This is the second storm to hit the Indian Ocean island in just two weeks.

One of the worst-hit towns was Nosy Varika on the east coast, where almost 95% of buildings were destroyed and access to it was cut off by severe flooding.
