Another official, Pedro Armando Alberto Virgula, in Chinde north of Beira, said a hospital, police station and seven schools there lost their roofs and several houses were destroyed.

Tropical cyclone Idai battered Mozambican coastal city Beira Friday, leaving half a million people virtually cut off after power lines crashed and roads were swamped by flooding that killed 66 people nationwide.

The Zambia Meteorological Department has rubbished the warning by the Disaster Management and Mitigation Unit alleging that certain parts of the country are likely to be affected by the hard-hit tropical cyclone that hit Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi.

Mr. Sikana, added that with the cyclone retracting back to Mozambique, it is apparently pulling the westerly winds towards Zambia thereby, inducing more rainfall activities on the Copperbelt, Luapula, Northern, Muchinga and parts of Eastern and Central provinces.

Flooding in region affected by the storm had already killed more than 60 people.

The U.N. said about 122 people had died in Mozambique and Malawi.

Joshua Sacco, a member of parliament in Zimbabwe, told local media that officials did not have an accurate count of the missing, indicating that death toll reports could increase.

Some of the storm's effects could be felt as far inland as Harare, the nation's capital city, some 200 miles from the border.

Mozambique's President Filipe Nyusi and Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa had both left for foreign trips just as the cyclone hit their respective countries.

Karikoga Kutadzaushe, operations director for the Zimbabwe Red Cross, told the South African Broadcasting Corporation that the situation is "quite dire" in the country's eastern highlands.

In Mozambique, the floods have already affected 117,000 people with more than 17,000 displaced. "There is need for food".

They were asleep in their dormitory when rocks swept down a mountain and knocked over a wall, officials say. "Everything is destroyed. Our priority now is to save human lives", Correia said at Beira global airport, which re-opened Sunday after the storm caused it to be temporarily closed.

Roads have been swallowed by massive sinkholes, while bridges were ripped to pieces by the flash floods, according to the AFP photographer.

Mozambique's weather service has warned that heavy rain will continue to batter Beira and surrounding areas until Sunday.
