BEIRA - Relief and rescue operations continue in earnest in Mozambique following the deadly cyclone which devastated parts of the country.

More than 100 people have been confirmed dead but the number is expected to rise.

Almost every street in Beira is flowing with water, highlighting the trail of destruction left by Cyclone Idai.

Electric cables, trees and lampposts have all been uprooted from the ground due to the heavy wind and rains.

All around roads are filled mud, leaves, and other debris from destroyed homes.
