The Cyclone Kenneth has made landfall in northern Mozambique, a country still recovering from another huge storm.

The cyclone has brought two hundred and twenty kilometer per hour winds and has killed three people on the island nation of Comoros.

Mozambique’s National Institute of Disaster Management said three thousand people had been evacuated from areas likely to be hit.

Last month, Cyclone Idai caused hundreds of deaths in the region.

More than nine hundred people died when the storm brought devastation to Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.

At least three million people were left in need of humanitarian assistance.

Kenneth made landfall on Mozambique’s northern province of Cabo Delgado, with wind speeds equivalent to a Category four hurricane.
