The death toll for Cyclone Idai may be more than 1,000 President Filipe Nyusi said on state broadcaster Radio Mocambique on Monday.

The president said that, while the number of people confirmed dead stood at 84, the scale of the disaster was «huge» and he had seen bodies floating in rivers while flying over the affected region.

The total death toll has risen to at least 215 after the storm tore into central Mozambique last week before continuing on to Zimbabwe and Malawi, bringing flash floods and ferocious winds.
