Mozambique’s National Institute for Disaster Management (INGD) estimates 565,000 people to be affected by the second landfall of Tropical Storm Freddy - directly impacting communities of Zambezia, Sofala and Tete. As of 10 March, INGD have identified at approximately 240,000 people already affected by the first landfall of Tropical Storm Freddy (24 February) as well as recent floods recorded in central and southern Mozambique. As of 20 March 2023, available reports indicate 87,951 individuals (19,365 families) in 120 ACs across Zambezia, 32,221 individuals (7,115 families) have taken shelter in 44 accommodation centres (ACs) across Sofala, 12,344 individuals (2,607 families) in 28 ACs across Tete, 3,634 individuals (792 families) in 15 ACs across Inhambane, 318 individuals (77 families) in 5 ACs across Manica, and 4,132 individuals (825 families) in 13 AC in Niassa. The majority of these centres are schools and churches. Reported priority needs include WASH, protection, health, food and emergency shelters. As rain and flood events develop, ongoing joint assessments with INGD and humanitarian partners monitor the needs and conditions of affected populations in the region. While movements remain dynamic in Zambezia impacted districts, accomadation Centres out of the reported 120 Accomadation Centres require further validation.
