Rescuers involved in the Cyclone Idai in Mozambique are racing against time to ensure that survivors are rescued on time.
Currently, reports indicate that thousands of people are stranded as they hold onto roofs and cling on trees.
Concerns are also rising on the status of clean water that is slowly running out to give the survivors. Currently, about 300 people have been confirmed dead with the death toll likely to rise in the next few days.
Fear of diseases catching up with the affected is also on the rise as shortages of clean water and food also in the rise.
Reports from the aid agencies on the ground indicate that locals are using water that does has not been chlorinated citing infections and disease to catch up with them.
Cyclone Idai has been termed as the worst disaster to hit the southern hemisphere with winds of more than 177 km/hr causing mass destruction in Mozambique and Zambia.
Rescue teams are currently giving high-energy level biscuits, water purification tablets among other supplies to the survivors.
