JOHANNESBURG - Rescue workers in Mozambique are racing against the clock to find hundreds of stranded people after several cities were left flooded in the aftermath of Cyclone Idai.

Roads around the port city of Beira are swamped and it’s been raining heavily, complicating rescue efforts which means aid is being flown into affected areas by helicopter or plane.
