Disaster relief providing shelter, food and water. The death toll from Cyclone Batsirai in Madagascar jumped to 120 on Friday from 92 reported earlier this week. The disaster relief agency said that of the deaths, 87 had occurred in one area, the Ikongo district in southeast Madagascar.
The cyclone had left just over 124,000 people with their homes damaged or destroyed, and some 30,000 more displaced. Batsirai was Madagascar’s second destructive storm in two weeks, after Tropical Storm Ana killed 55 and displaced 130,000 in a different area of the country. The island nation, with a population of nearly 30 million, was already struggling with food shortages in the south, a consequence of a severe and prolonged drought.
