Cyclone Idai created inland oceans and left cities across Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi with more than 750 dead. Mozambique’s former first lady said that Beira “will go down in history as having been the first city to be completely devastated by climate change”. Reports say there are hundreds of bodies alongside a single road as death tolls are expected to continue to increase.The UN has classified the storm as “one of the worst weather-related disasters ever-recorded in Southern Hemisphere” and is now on the same priority level as places such as Yemen and South Sudan.
