In Madagascar, at least 29 people have been killed, and tens of thousands more have been displaced from their homes, after a cyclone hit the island nation off the southeastern coast of Africa over the weekend. This is Haingo Tina, who was displaced by the cyclone.
Haingo Tina: “We are six in our family, and our house is completely submerged in water. My child has a strong fever, so we decided to come here to the displaced holding area. From morning, the moment you step down from you bed, you’re forced to walk in water. Water is everywhere, and that is the reason we came here.”
Meanwhile, a tsunami alert has been issued for wide swaths of Central America and the Caribbean, after a magnitude-7.6 earthquake struck off the coast of Honduras.
