There have been conflicting reports on the total number of fatalities—Reuters reports that 686 people have died, and the Guardian puts the number at more than 750 people dead across Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi—while more than a hundred thousand are currently in camps for displaced people and nearly two million are in need of aid.

Aerial images from the past few day show the true scale of devastation and flooding that still lingers.
