Storm Freddy kills 40 in Malawi – official

An official in Malawi has said at least 40 people have died as a result of the destruction caused by tropical storm Freddy.

Mobile phone footage shows homes with their roofs torn off and extremely dangerous, fast-flowing water in urban areas.

The full impact is not yet clear as some areas have been cut off.

The storm struck Mozambique as a cyclone on Sunday – for the second time in less than a month.

The authorities there say they so far know of six deaths in the port city of Quelimane.

Initial assessments by humanitarian agencies report extensive damage to private homes in more than half of Mozambique’s provinces.
