Cyclone Idai has left a path of destruction and continued flooding.  The current number of deaths is reported to be 84. That number is expected to rise over the next few days. Response and search and rescue efforts are being conducted by various organizations in multiple areas.  The top priority at this time is the distribution of food and clean water systems. Unfortunately, the widespread flooding has made many essential roads impassable, delaying relief efforts in some areas.  BGR is and will continue to monitor the situation.
