The city of Beira 90% destroyed by the Cyclone Idai has been submerged for the past few days due to the heavy rains incessantly battering the area.
Many houses and whole streets are flooded. Some parts of the city are completely inaccessible and it continues raining.
The Beira Municipal Council has approved the opening of some canals to allow for the water to run into the sea. The authorities claim the situation has been aggravated by the irresponsible disposal of waste by the locals.
