When Tropical Storm Freddy’s death toll soared past 270, Malawi and Mozambique raced to rescue survivors.

Freddy hit southern Africa for the second time in a month over the weekend and continued to rain on Wednesday, hindering relief operations.

Malawi’s crisis management service reported 225 deaths after the second hit, up from 190 on Tuesday, 707 injuries, and 41 missing.

The disaster agency reported 21 deaths in Mozambique on Tuesday.

Since February, Freddy has killed over 270 people in Malawi, Mozambique, and Madagascar.

Blantyre, a commercial hub, was most struck by Malawi’s army, police, Red Cross, and other assistance agencies’ search and rescue activities.

Floods and mudslides wrecked homes, bridges, and roadways. Quelimane, Mozambique, continues to get heavy rain.

“While we assess what happened, we must locate and rescue individuals in the worst-hit regions. We’ve saved thousands, but many remain inaccessible “Disaster agency spokeswoman Paulo Tomas called from Quelimane.

The storm forced the national energy-producing firm to shut down key hydroelectric power units in Malawi, disrupting the power supply.
