Cyclone kills baby, 28 others, injures 3 — In Madagascar

Humanitarian organizations are now providing people with medical supplies, drinking water and tents, Dujarric said.

The cyclone hit the eastern part of Madagascar on Friday and left the country on Sunday by continuing its trajectory to the southeast off the country with an average speed of 15 km per hour.

Video uploaded to social media showed heavy rain and winds sweeping through the port city of Toamasina.

Classes were suspended until Thursday for more than 16-thousand students due to the risk of flooding and landslides.

"On a national scale, the provisional toll is 29 dead, 22 missing, 17 170 displaced and 83 023 affected", the National Bureau for Risk and Catastrophe Management said in a statement.

But Georges Geeraerts, the president of the Group of the Vanilla exporters, said the cyclone Ava had not touched vanilla-producing areas and there had been "no impact" on production.

More than 80,000 people in Madagascar were affected by Tropical Cyclone Ava, after it made landfall along northeastern Madagascar's coast on January 5, according to UN.
