Malawi President Lazarus Chakwera pointed out that the death toll in the country has increased due to the hurricane.
Chakwera announced that at least 326 people died in Malawi alone, with more than 200 missing.
In the news in the local press, it was shared that the death toll exceeded 50 in Mozambique and that the search and rescue efforts for the missing persons were continuing.
Camps established for those affected by the hurricane
300 camps were established for those who had to leave their homes in the storm that affected the south of Malawi.
An international call for help has been made as thousands have been left homeless.
All flags across the country were lowered at half-mast in Malawi, and 14 days of mourning was declared for those who lost their lives.
The World Meteorological Organization announced that Freddy, which affected Madagascar on February 21 and Mozambique 3 days later, could be the longest lasting hurricane in history.
