Cholera outbreak declared in cyclone-hit northern Mozambique

JOHANNESBURG, May 2 (Reuters) - Officials declared a cholera outbreak in northern Mozambique on Thursday, a week after cyclone winds, floods and heavy rains hit the area, local television station STV said.

Cyclone Kenneth crashed into the province of Cabo Delgado on Thursday last week, flattening entire villages with winds of up to 280 kph (174 mph) and killing at least 41 people. (Reporting by Emma Rumney Writing Tanisha Heiberg Editing by Andrew Heavens)
