EWN's Christa Eybers and Mercia Andrews of the Rural Women's Assembly describe the devastation in the Mozambican city of Beira.
Beira at the moment is an absolute shutdown. There is no electricity, there is no network. The only place we can have WiFi at the moment is at the operations centre that has been set up at the airport by various relief organisations from around the world.— Christa Eybers, Reporter - EWN
She describes the devastation seen from the air while flying into Beira with many houses destroyed, trees overturned and flooding continuing in some areas.
The one conveyor belt working in the airport had more bottled water on it than suitcases.— Christa Eybers, Reporter - EWN
Journalists and relief workers are streaming into the country but it continues to be a challenge to travel to the affected areas, she says.
There is just not enough infrastructure inside many countries. Mozambique is unable to cope with its own disaster.— Mercia Andrews - Rural Women's Assembly
Large sections of communities have been completely destroyed.— Mercia Andrews - Rural Women's Assembly
