Six dead after flash floods in Malawi

(BBC) Malawian authorities say six people died and four were injured from last week’s flash floods in the central part of the country.

Over 14,000 people have been displaced, with most of them now staying in camps, the country’s Department of Disaster Management Affairs said in a statement on Tuesday.

It said many of the places that were affected by the floods are still inaccessible due to the extensive damage caused to roads and other infrastructure.

This has hampered the delivery of aid, it said, with humanitarian workers mostly relying on boats to reach affected areas.

The agency has appealed for more help from individuals, companies and aid organisations to support government’s efforts to provide relief.

It comes just a year after hundreds of Malawians were killed after Tropical Storm Freddy ripped through southern Africa.
