Devastation in Mozambique

Tropical cyclones carry three major threats: winds, storm surge, and rainfall-triggered floods. All three landed devastating blows on Mozambique when Tropical Cyclone Idai came ashore on 15 March, 2019, after taking a sharp turn in the Mozambique Channel a few days earlier. The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA's Aqua satellite captured a false-colour image of the flooding on 21 March, 2019 - the first relatively clear NASA satellite view since Idai hit.
