On dénombre au moins 31 morts, et plus de 70 disparus.

Le bilan encore provisoire du cyclone est lourd: les services d'urgence avancent le chiffre de plus de 120 morts et 100.000 déplacés. ils estiment également que près d'million de sinistrés sont à enregistrer dans les deux pays, dont plus de 900.000 sur le territoire malawite.

La plupart des vols intérieurs ont été suspendus jeudi au Mozambique, en prévision de l'arrivée imminente du cyclone tropical Idai sur le centre du pays, déjà victime de graves inondations qui ont fait au moins 66 morts.

L'aéroport du chef-lieu de la province de Sofala a été "dévasté", a rapporté à l'AFP un responsable du responsable de l'Institut national de gestion des catastrophes (DMNI).

Plus de 6oooo personnes ont été sinistrées par ces inondations torrentielles.

Depuis le début du mois mars, un système dépressionnaire associé au cyclone Idai s'est signalé dans l'est de l'Afrique menaçant principalement le Mozambique et le Malawi.

Au Malawi, la réponse humanitaire, les efforts de secours et de recherche et des évaluations rapides sont en cours, et le gouvernement a lancé un appel au secours en termes de fourniture de matériels de secours d'urgence, notamment des tentes, de la nourriture, des médicaments et des hélicoptères pour les opérations de secours et envoyer de l'aide.

C'est la deuxième fois qu'Idai s'abat sur le pays. Près de 6.000 habitations ont été détruites.

"Le cyclone Idai a frappé une population déjà en difficulté et donc extrêmement vulnérable. Son passage a encore aggravé leurs souffrances", a souligné Marcoluigi Corsi, le représentant de l'Unicef au Mozambique.

Même si le Mozambique subit régulièrement le passage de cyclones, IDAI est le quatrième cyclone à toucher le Mozambique avec une telle intensité depuis le début des relevés satellitaires (1966).

Les inondations ont provoqué ces derniers jours 30 morts et laissé plus de 230.000 personnes sans abri dans le sud du Malawi voisin, selon les autorités locales.

Les autorités malawiennes ont monté à la hâte près de 200 camps pour accueillir les sinistrés, qui y vivent dans des conditions précaires à la merci du paludisme.

S'agissant de la livraison de l'aide, des stocks alimentaires ont été identifiés dans les pays touchés et ailleurs dans la région de l'Afrique australe, comme en Afrique du Sud et en Zambie.
