Thousands homeless as Storm Freddy tears through southern Malawi - BBC News

One of the most powerful storms on record has brought widespread landslides and flooding to southern Malawi.

It’s claimed the lives of at least 190 people and tens of thousands have been made homeless.

Malawi’s commercial hub, Blantyre, has recorded most of the deaths, 158, including dozens of children.

The government has declared a state of disaster in 10 southern districts that have been hardest-hit by the storm.

Rescue workers are overwhelmed, and are using shovels to try to find survivors buried in mud.
