MAPUTO

Mozambique was battered by high winds, flooding and sea surges when cyclone Dineo made landfall late Wednesday but the storm has begun to die down, according to meteorologists Thursday.

Dineo reached Inhambane, southern Mozambique, between 8:00 pm and midnight on Wednesday, buffeting the town with winds in excess of 100 kmh (62 mph), torrential rain and rough seas, according to the South African Weather Service (SAWS).

Roofs were torn off houses in the path of the storm, electricity supplies were cut and roads flooded and blocked by debris in the popular tourist town, according to local media.

No fatalities or injuries were reported.
