29 killed, 80,000 affected by Madagascar cyclone AVA

Antananarivo,Jan 9:-- Twenty-nine people died and more than 80,000 were affected after tropical cyclone Ava tore through Madagascar over the last weekend.

 

Authorities said seventeen people died yesterday, after a house crumbled following a mudslide in the Ivory suburb, south-east of the capital Antananarivo.

 

The cyclone, which made landfall on Friday morning, lashed the eastern part of the African island off Mozambique with violent winds and heavy rains before moving off the territory on Saturday night.

It caused flash flooding in the capital Antananarivo and the port city of Toamasina and in the eastern town of Tamatave disrupting power and cutting off the roads by felled trees.

 

Madagascar, one of the world's poorest countries, is regularly hit by cyclones.
