  • Cyclone death toll rises
  • 1 000s homeless after cyclone
  • Cyclone destroys 100s of homes
  • Antananarivo - At least eight people died and more than 3 300 rendered homeless by tropical cyclone Jade on the Indian Ocean island nation of Madagascar, the authorities said on Wednesday.

    Five new casualties were reported from Mananjary in the southeastern coast following a mudslide, a statement issued by Madagascar's disaster management authority said, adding that more than 3 320 people had lost their homes.

    Two children and their mother died in a house collapse north of the capital Antananarivo, the authority had said earlier.

    Jade made landfall on Monday in the northeastern region of the vast island and has now left Madagascar, but the heavy rains it left in its trail heightened fears of serious floods.

    Madagascar's cyclone season is due to end soon. In January at least nine people were killed and more than 20 000 lost their homes after two cyclones hit the island.
