4th tropical storm hits Madagascar in a month

Antananarivo, Feb 23 (TIWN) Tropical cyclone Emnati lashed the southeast coast of Madagascar, the fourth tropical storm to hit the island nation in a month, according to weather forecasters and UN humanitarians.

While tropical cyclone Emnati was due to make landfall in the south of the East African State on Tuesday – on Madagascar’s east coast – central and southern areas were also likely to be affected. 

“We are in a race against time to protect those who dealt with the fury of the first three extreme weather events from the impact of Emnati,” said Jens Laerke, spokesperson for UN humanitarian coordination office, OCHA.   

“Response teams have been deployed earlier to support the Government-led response.”
