Five Killed In Madagascar Cyclone

At least five people have been killed, and around 10,000 people were forced to leave their homes, after a cyclone made landfall in northeastern Madagascar.

Five people are now known to have died in Madagascar from a cyclone that made landfall in the northeast of the island on Tuesday, officials say.

About 10,000 people have had to leave their homes because of damage from Cyclone Enawo.

Power supplies are also down in some areas, according to local media.

The emergency services are warning of the threat of flooding, including in the capital, Antananarivo, although the storm has now diminished in strength.

Weather stations say the rain has weakened to drizzle although there are still strong winds.
