Officials have warned that Cyclone Kenneth could be even stronger than Idai as it targets an area not used to such storms.

This is the first time on record that Mozambique has been hit by two cyclones in one season, a U.N. spokesman said. Before Mozambique, Kenneth swept over the island nation of Comoros, killing three people. (VOA)
