Mozambique’s National Institute for Disaster Management (INGD) estimates 886,487 were 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 26 March 2023, available reports indicate 29,650 individuals (6,952 families) in 45 ACs across Zambezia, 26,163 individuals (5,794 families) have taken shelter in 32 accommodation centres (ACs) across Sofala, 59,594 individuals (12,020 families) in 32 ACs across Tete, 3,634 individuals (792 families) in 15 ACs across Inhambane and 4,639 individuals (947 families) in 14 ACs 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 and Inhambane impacted districts, accomadation Centres out of the reported 45 and 15 Accomadation Centres require further validation.
