Serious flooding began on Sunday in parts of northern Mozambique that were hit by Cyclone Kenneth three days ago. With waters waist-high in some areas, the government urged many people to immediately seek higher ground.

Authorities have said at least 5 people died after the cyclone arrived late on Thursday with the force of a Category 4 hurricane, stunning residents of a region where a cyclone had not been recorded in the modern era.

Cyclone Kenneth came just 6 weeks after Cyclone Idai ripped into central Mozambique and killed more than 600 people.
