Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: An isolated shower or thunderstorm remains possible in the hot and humid air this Saturday, the 4th. Same for Sunday...although NOT a wash-out either day!
CHOKWE, Mozambique (January 29, 2013)—The United Nations will launch an appeal for $65 million in aid after flooding in Mozambique killed 38 people and displaced more than 150,000, a U.N. official said.
Marie Conselee Mukangendo, of the U.N. children's agency UNICEF, said the Chikahalani camp alone is holding an estimated 65,000 people, but has only 28 latrines.
She called the situation dire and said the U.N. would appeal for $65 million in relief aid on Wednesday.
Mozambique suffered record floods in 2000 that killed more than 700 people.
