The death toll from storm Eloise rose to at least 13 on Monday after heavy winds, rain and flooding destroyed buildings, drowned crops and displaced thousands in parts of southern Africa.

Aerial footage showed swathes of land in eastern Mozambique submerged in flood waters, with residents and houses stranded in the devastating aftermath of Cyclone Eloise.

Eloise weakened to a tropical storm after making landfall in central Mozambique on Saturday but continued to dump rain on Zimbabwe, Eswatini (formerly known as Swaziland), South Africa and Botswana.

    In meteorology, a cyclone is a large scale air mass that rotates around a strong center of low atmospheric pressure. Cyclones are characterized by inward spiraling winds that rotate about a zone of low pressure and typically bring winds, rain, high waves and storm surges to the areas they pass.

    In the Atlantic and the northeastern Pacific oceans, a tropical cyclone is generally referred to as a hurricane (from the name of the ancient Central American deity of wind, Huracan), in the Indian and south Pacific oceans it is called a cyclone, and in the northwestern Pacific it is called a typhoon.
