The Meteorological Services Department of Zimbabwe has warned of strong winds in the country as record-breaking Tropical Cyclone Freddy made its second landfall in Mozambique on Saturday night, pounding the neighbouring nation with heavy rains.

The department says a windy start to the working week is expected, with cloudy conditions in the southern and eastern parts of the country.

Apparently, Cyclone Freddy displaced hundreds of people as it battered central Mozambique on Sunday after making landfall for a second time in a month, breaking records for the duration and strength of tropical storms in the southern hemisphere.

Communications and electricity supply in the storm area have been cut so the extent of the damage and number of casualties were not clear.

At least one person was killed in Quelimane on Saturday when his house collapsed as the storm swept onshore.
