Cyclone Idai Zimbabwe Update: Death Toll Rises To 98

The Ministry of Information, Broadcasting and Publicity says the total deaths from Cyclone Idai is now 98.

The information ministry says 217 are reported missing, 102 are injured while 42 are marooned.

Meanwhile, some roads were destroyed while bridges were washed away by raging rivers. As a result, some parts of Manicaland are not accessible by road. This has made it difficult for officials and well-wishers to send help to the affected people. Moreover, families are not able to bury the dead due to floods as their homes were flattened by rock falls and mudslides or washed away by torrential rains.
