Aid Workers Widen Search For Survivors As Cyclone Death Toll Mounts

According to a report by Reuters, on Thursday, rescue workers in Mozambique extended their search for survivors of devastating floods following a powerful cyclone that tore through southern Africa last week.

Land and Environment Minister Celso Correia said that he death toll has reportedly risen to 217 and around 15,000 people remain in danger and need to be rescued.

Correia also warned that rescue workers continue to discover bodies and the death toll could rise sharply.

Connor Hartnady, the leader of a South African rescue operations task force, said that a high priority was to push into remaining unexplored areas affected by the flooding in search of people needing rescue.
