The death toll from the deadly cyclone that struck three southern African countries earlier this month topped 700, as response efforts continued over the weekend. Cyclone Idai hit Mozambique on March 14 before moving into Zimbabwe and Malawi. Officials have so far reported 446 deaths in Mozambique associated with the storm, 259 in Zimbabwe, and 56 in Malawi. As the waters from the cyclone continue to recede and rescue workers access more affected regions, the death toll is expected to rise.
