Cyclone Batsirai slams into Madagascar

Date: 09 February 2022 Tags: Disaster & Disaster Management
  • At least six people were killed after Cyclone Batsirai made landfall on Madagascar’s coast. The city of Nosy Varika is almost 95% destroyed.
  • Packing winds of 235 km/h (155mph), the cyclone struck the Mananjary district, more than 530 kilometers (310 miles) southeast of the capital Antananarivo.
  • Several hours after Batsirai made landfall, forecasters said the cyclone had weakened, with wind speeds dropping almost by half. But they warned that floods were still expected due to heavy rain.
