More than 120 people have died and many more are missing in Mozambique and Zimbabwe after tropical cyclone Idai hit the southern African nations this past weekend.

Idai hit Mozambique first on Thursday night before moving to Zimbabwe.

In Zimbabwe, eastern Chimanimani district was the worst hit part of the country. Houses and bridges were washed away by flash floods when the storm slammed the area.

The most affected areas are not yet accessible, while high winds and dense clouds have hampered military rescue helicopter flights.
