Kenneth is the first cyclone ever recorded to hit northern Mozambique. It dissipated on Saturday but in its aftermath came heavy rainfall in several parts of Cabo Delgado and Nampula provinces that is expected to continue for several days.
The central part of the country was in March hit by Cyclone Idai, which affected 1.5 million people, killing 603.
