Al Azhar has expressed its sincere condolences for the victims of deadly floods which have pounded Zimbabwe، Malawi، and Mozambique in recent days، leaving at least 150 dead.

Al Azhar has extended its deepest condolences and sympathy to the families of all the victims، wishing a speedy recovery for the injured.
Noteworthy، A powerful cyclone that tore through Mozambique، Malawi and Zimbabwe this past week has destroyed roads، bridges and homes and left more than 200 people dead and tens of thousands displaced.

About 1.5 million people in total have been affected by Cyclone Idai's torrential rains and winds that have reached speeds of up to 200 kilometers، or 124 miles، per hour، according to the United Nations.

The tropical cyclone made landfall Thursday near the coastal city of Beira، Mozambique، which lost electricity and communications in the storm.

The cyclone weakened as it moved into eastern Zimbabwe، Ish Mafundikwa reports for NPR.

Nonetheless، it remained powerful enough to wipe out infrastructure and homes، leaving many people stranded in inaccessible regions in the country's eastern highlands.
