Tropical Cyclone Favio Hits Mozambique

Tropical Cyclone Favio

A deadly cyclone hit Mozambique last week, and this is after massive flooding of that southern African country. Fortunately, because of a early warning system, not too many people died – but thousands and thousands of huts were destroyed leaving 160,000 people homeless. I have not seen very much about this on the news. Here is some more information:
