Madagascar: Flooding caused by tropical cyclone

17 January 2015 – Persistent heavy rainfall brought about by Tropical Cyclone Bansi, traversing the eastern part of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean, has lashed the country since 9 January 2015. Simultaneously a depression in the Mozambique Channel in the Indian Ocean has built up and has started moving towards the island of Madagascar, equally contributing to increased rainfall. This depression has strengthened into a tropical cyclone named Chedza.
