Floods kill at least 30 in Mozambique

12 February 2013, 11:23

Maputo - At least 30 people have died in recent days due to floods in northern Mozambique, local authorities said on Monday.

Amancio Nhantumbo of the Mozambique National Disaster Management Institute (INGC) said the flood-related deaths occurred in the province of Nampula and were caused mainly by "drowning, acute diarrhoea and lightning".

Nearly 2 000 homes have been destroyed in the area, INGC said, with thousands of displaced families living in resettlement camps.

Nampula authorities were carrying out compulsory evacuations of residents living in low-lying areas at risk of further flooding.

In southern Mozambique, floods have killed 105 people and displaced 150 000 since the beginning of the rainy season in October.

Meanwhile, Cahora Bassa hydroelectric CEO Antonio Muxanga told reporters that transmission lines carrying electricity to South Africa were under threat and could collapse at any time.
