Cyclone-hit Madagascar braces for another ‘big one’

NAIROBI, KENYA (AP) – The island of Madagascar off the east coast of Africa is bracing for yet another cyclone having already been hit by three major tropical storms in the last month.

Cyclone Emnati made landfall on the eastern coast of Madagascar late yesterday.

Tropical storm Ana hit Madagascar in late January. The devastating Cyclone Batsirai left more than 120 people dead and displaced around 143,000 on the island early this month, and destroyed buildings and roads. Cyclone Dumako made landfall just last week.
