Mozambique starts the clean up after cyclone as death toll spikes

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Residents of Mozambique's port town of Beira were clearing up the damage from Cyclone Idai on Sunday (March 24) as international relief agencies say they are increasing their efforts to assist survivors.

Cyclone Idai hit Beira, on the Indian Ocean, with winds of up to 170 kph (105 mph), then moved inland to Zimbabwe and Malawi, flattening buildings and putting the lives of millions at risk.

The Mozambique Minister of Land and Environment, Celso Correia, revised the death toll to 446 people on Sunday (March 24) and said efforts were now focused on rebuilding and halting the spread of diseases such as cholera and malaria.

International aid cargos and planes were seen on Beira airport's tarmac all day on Sunday.

The UK has already sent over 7,500 emergency shelter kits and family tents to Maputo, Mozambique's capital last Wednesday (March 20) and UK Aid tents were set up outside the damaged Mozambique military airbase in Beira.

Other UK aid flight brought forklift trucks and other cargo handling equipment to help speed up the unloading of aid from planes, the Department For International Development (DFID) said.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said they were going to deploy three large field hospitals next week.
