Mozambique Islands after Cyclones Idai and Kenneth

Mozambique Islands after Cyclones Idai and Kenneth

As highlighted in recent news reports, Mozambique has been in the path of 2 cyclones in the past couple of months, which have caused devastating floods in both central and Northern Mozambique. However Mozambique is a very large country with over 2500km of coastline and numerous islands, and fortunately many areas have been totally unaffected. 

The cyclones were Idai, which caused devastating damage to Beira and surrounding areas of the Sofala Province, and Kenneth which made landfall in the Macomia and Mocimboa de Praia in Cabo Delgado Province. The islands most affected by Kenneth were Ibo, Matemo and Quirimba Island. The mainland areas were more affected than the islands, however it really is unprecedented to have 2 cyclones in one year, especially so far north!
