Extensive damage in Malawi following Cyclone Freddy.

Cyclone Freddy made landfall, in southern Africa, for the second time in a month, causing serious damage across Malawi, Madagascar, and Mozambique. 
The Cyclone went through several rapid intensifications and is considered the longest-lasting cyclone on record.
Over 300 people have been killed in Madagascar, Malawi, and Mozambique. At least 700 are injured, and at least 90,000 are displaced. Of particular concern is Malawi, which has been fighting a devastating cholera outbreak for over a year, and the floods from Cyclone Freddy could likely exacerbate the situation as access to clean water and hygiene will be further constrained. Malawi declared a state of emergency. There is significant infrastructure damage, impacting access to affected areas.
