Tropical Cyclone Freddy has left a trail of destruction in its wake, tearing through Malawi and Mozambique and killing at least 225 people.
The cyclone has also left many others injured or missing, according to the Department of Disaster Management Affairs.
The storm hit Africa for the second time in a month on Saturday night and has broken records for the number of times it has re-intensified after weakening – seven times.
As a result, it is set to be the longest-ever recorded tropical cyclone, and has the highest-ever recorded accumulated energy for a storm.
Authorities in Malawi fear that the death toll will rise, and that there is a risk of a resurgence of cholera in the country.
Malawi has been battling a cholera outbreak, and the vaccine coverage in Blantyre is very poor.
Meanwhile, scientists have said that climate change caused by mostly industrialized nations pumping greenhouse gases into the air has worsened cyclone activity, making them more intense and more frequent.
