I. HIGHLIGHTS/KEY PRIORITIES

In total, an estimated 116,333 people have been affected, among them 40 deaths due to two tropical storms between 18 and 26 January 2012; however, this number is expected to continue as assessment is ongoing.

In northern Mozambique, Tropical Cyclone Funso - a category 4 storm - hit Zambézia Province on 20 January 2012, affecting about 64,663 people and causing floods and damage of houses, schools and health centres.

In southern Mozambique, high river flows from upstream countries, specifically South Africa and Swaziland, combined with heavy rainfall due to Tropical Storm Dando, affected about 51,670 people.

Damage assessments and the provision of assistance in the provinces of Maputo, Maputo City, Gaza and Zambézia continues.

There is a possibility that in-country pre-positioned shelter material will not be enough to respond to the emerging needs.
