Abstract

On 14 March 2019, Cyclone Idai made landfall in Beira, Mozambique as a category 3 tropical cyclone (wind speed reached 194 km/hr). Winds and heavy rains caused flooding and severe devastation. More than 1,000 people died and the World Bank estimates that the storm destroyed over $2 billion in infrastructure. Three million people have been affected, with over 100,000 homes and at least a million acres of crops destroyed. A severe cholera outbreak has seen over 4,000 infected alongside rising cases of malaria. Idai is being described as the worst weather-related disaster in the southern hemisphere.
