Cholera pretty much inevitable in the wake of cyclone Idai. Help is needed there.

Cyclone IDAI, excerpts from Wiki[edia article:

On 14 March, Idai reached peak intensity with maximum sustained winds of 195 km/h (120 mph) and a minimum central pressure of 940 hPa (27.76 inHg). Idai then began to weaken as it approached the coast of Mozambique due to less favourable conditions. On 15 March, Idai made landfall near Beira, Mozambique, as an intense tropical cyclone, subsequently weakening into a remnant low on 16 March. On 19 March, Idai's remnants re-emerged into the Mozambique Channel, and dissipated on 21 March.[8][9]

Idai brought strong winds and caused severe flooding in Madagascar, Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe, which killed 784 people – 468 in Mozambique, 259 in Zimbabwe, 56 in Malawi, and one in Madagascar – and affected more than 3 million others. Catastrophic damage occurred in and around Beira in southern Mozambique. The President of Mozambique stated that more than 1,000 people may have died in the storm

Mozambique - Tropical Cyclone Kenneth leaves 38 dead and 20,000 displaced

Tropical Cyclone Kenneth death toll rises to 38 in Mozambique, officials say

(CNN)The death toll from Tropical Cyclone Kenneth has climbed to 38, the Mozambican government's disaster management institute said on Monday.

Four people have also died in the island nation of Comoros, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.
The cyclone, the strongest storm to hit the region since records began, made landfall in Mozambique on Thursday.
Kenneth is the second powerful tropical storm to hit southeast Africa in five weeks. Despite its power, Cyclone Kenneth is slow-moving, leading experts to fear it could continue to dump torrential rains on an area still reeling from the devastation wrought by Cyclone Idai.

That storm killed 750 people across southern Africa, forced thousands into camps in March and wreaked an estimated $1 billion worth of damage -- about 10% of Mozambique's GDP.
In the commercial hub and provincial capital of Pemba, residents Monday said they hoped the worst was over after a weekend of heavy rains and flooding since Cyclone Kenneth made landfall Thursday.
"The rain has stopped, at least for now. There is still water on the ground but the main roads in the city are now passable," said resident Innocent Mushunje.

Tropical Cyclone Harold Lashing Vanuatu and Could Pass Near Fiji Later This Week

By Linda Lamless than an hour ago weather.com 

At a Glance
Tropical Cyclone Harold is lashing Vanuatu.
Strong winds, flooding rain and storm surge are serious concerns.
Harold will track near or south of Fiji and Tonga midweek.
Tropical Cyclone Harold made landfall on the island of Espiritu Santo in the Republic of Vanuatu and will move slowly through the South Pacific archipelago country early this week with strong winds, heavy rain and storm surge before tracking near Fiji later this week.

Harold formed between the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea last Wednesday. Flooding and downed trees were reported in the Solomon Islands, and at least 24 passengers were missing after a ferry encountered strong winds and violent seas from Harold early Friday.

Note from Barb: Realizing sometimes my Topic titles and terms could be more exact. Changed the name of this Topic
from: WORLD TYPHOONS to: WORLD TYPHOONS and CYCLONES.


What's the difference between cyclones, hurricanes, typhoons?

The answer: there is no difference.

The National Ocean Service says that hurricane, typhoon, and cyclone are all terms used to describe "a rotating, organized system of clouds and thunderstorms that originates over tropical or subtropical waters."

The location where the storm originates is how scientists determine what to call the system.

CNN Meteorologist Chad Myers explains:

Cyclones are in the Indian Ocean and South Pacific
Typhoons are in the Western North Pacific
Hurricanes are in the Eastern North Pacific and Northern Atlantic Basin
And yes, it is possible for storms to change names as they move across the map. For example, a hurricane can become a typhoon when it moves over the dateline.

The National Ocean Service said that these names all describe "a rotating, organized system of clouds and thunderstorms that originates over tropical or subtropical waters."
