Cyclone Idai: Families hunt for missing relatives in Zimbabwe

Cyclone Idai is the worst storm to hit Zimbabwe since cyclone Eline in nearly 20 years.

In Zimbabwe, the floods have cut off communities, making it hard for help to reach them.

People say they cannot wait any longer for authorities to help them find their relatives. So they are digging themselves.

Survivors believe those who were not swept away in the flash floods could be buried under the debris.
