Tropical Storms

Last week a tropical storm (Dando) hit Maputo, with heavy rain and strong winds.

150 miles north, Xai-Xai city was flooded and without electricity, reminding the 2000 flood that killed 700 people.

50 miles north of Maputo, the main road was under water isolating the capital city from the rest of the country.

A few days later, another storm (Funso) hit the Center and North areas of the country, distroying cultures and houses, killing almost 40 people and affecting hundreds of families.
