Cyclone Freddy shatters Malawi, leaving rescuers in a state of fear and uncertainty as they try to find survivors.
A cyclone is not something that anyone would want to encounter in their lifetime since not only are the chances of survival slim, but there is also no guarantee. Then again, life has a way of violently interfering with men’s plans: Cyclones arrive, and people lament their losses.
Rescuers are rushing to extract survivors from the mayhem enveloping Malawi, a poor African nation, which is currently being hit by a cyclone.
According to accounts, Cyclone Freddy slammed Blantyre, one of Malawi’s famous cities, causing landslides and floods that claimed the lives of more than 200 people.
Rescue workers, including those from Red Cross Malawi, step up their efforts to get as many people out of harm’s way as possible even as fear and uncertainty are rampant in the shattered nation. Red Cross Malawi spokesperson Felix Washoni provided details on the catastrophe and the rapid rush for survival among locals, noting that they discovered individuals on higher grounds, rooftops, and even in trees.
It is difficult to get to these folks because to high water and collapsed bridges. But, efforts are still being made to contact them. By the way, this isn’t the first time the area has been hit by a cyclone.
