"The death toll from the devastating Cyclone Idai that battered Manicaland province since Friday has risen to 28, up from 23 reported earlier.

Massive desperation and destruction has also been reported as dozens are still missing, others marooned with more losing homes and property.

This is according to a late Saturday update by the Civil Protection Unit (CPU)."

The death toll in Mozambique from Cyclone Idai could be as high as 1,000, President Filipe Nyusi has said.

Mr Nyusi flew over some of the worst-hit areas on Monday. He described seeing bodies floating in the rivers.

Flying over flooded Mozambique.

"The pilot pointed towards the east across the expanse of brown water. "We are 15 miles from the sea," he said, "but it feels as if we are right over it."

He was right. Below us, farmland that had been home to thousands of people had disappeared."

The northern hemisphere seems much worse for severe tropical storms, according to this map. Probably closely related to currents and water temperatures. Look at South America !
