Thousands Still Trapped After Cyclone Idai, 900 Rescued in Mozambique as Floodwaters Begin to Recede

More than 900 people were rescued Wednesday in Mozambique and at least 15,000 more await rescue on rooftops and trees a week after Tropical Cyclone Idai devastated three African nations.

"Yesterday, 910 people were rescued by the humanitarian community," said Caroline Haga of the International Federation of the Red Cross in Beira, The Associated Press reported. That included 210 who were rescued by five helicopters and 700 others saved by boats, she added.

"We're hoping to rescue as many as we can today as it is not raining," she said. "Rescue activities will continue until everyone is brought to safety."
