Convoy of Hope Disaster services team is responding to cyclone Kenneth in Mozambique, and is currently assessing and soon to deploy teams and resources to the hard hit countries of India and Bangladesh resulting from cyclone Fani.
- Cyclone Fani, the strongest tropical cyclone to hit India in 20 years, made landfall as the equivalent of a Category 4 hurricane.
- Despite the mandatory evacuations enforced on roughly 1 million people, fatalities have been reported.
- The storm is expected to weaken some as it moves toward the densely-populated city of Kolkata and then to Bangladesh.
- Convoy of Hope is closely monitoring the situation and is actively working with connections in India and Bangladesh to evaluate the nature of our response.
