Tropical Cyclone Enawo made landfall yesterday morning just north of Antalaha, Madagascar with winds in excess of 100kt. The storm has since weakened to 30kt, but still poses serious flood risks as it moves south through the country, and will soon be affecting larger populations in the cities near the central parts of the country. Despite the low population density, there were still videos and images coming out of the country showing off the power of the storm and subsequent damage. Enawo was the strongest landfalling storm for the island in 13 years. There have now been confirmation of casualties, with 3 people reportedly dying and hundreds more being displaced from the storm.
