As Rains Break, Aid Workers Rush To Reach Mozambique Cyclone Victims

"MAPUTO - Aid workers in northern Mozambique scrambled planes and helicopters packed with aid to communities cut off, sometimes without any supplies, for at least two days after Cyclone Kenneth brought torrential rain to the region.

Kenneth slammed into Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province on Thursday, killing at least 38 people, flattening entire villages and bringing relentless downpours that grounded aid operations and turned streets in the port city of Pemba to rivers.

More rain was expected on Tuesday, and aid workers raced to mobilize before it started again."
