Cyclone Kenneth has ‘entirely wiped out’ some villages in Mozambique, after making landfall on Thursday, according to a UN official.

One aid worker said it looked like areas had been ‘run over by a bulldozer’.
It comes just a month after Cyclone Idai killed 900 people across three countries, including Mozambique.

Heavy rain continued to fall on Friday, raising fears of more floods. Authorities have advised people to move to higher ground amid concern that thousands may be trapped in remote villages.


Mozambique was still recovering from Cyclone Idai, which killed more than 900 people across three countries in March.

Cyclone Kenneth had already killed three people on the island nation of Comoros.
