Tropical Storm Cheneso reached the Northeastern coast of Madagascar, in the Sava Region, on the morning of 19 January. Wind gusts of up to 120 km/h were recorded as the storm headed South-West, in addition to heavy rainfall reported particularly in the North, triggering flash flooding and multiple landslides. Approximately 700 homes were damaged, affecting over 2000 people, along with one fatality and one missing person. Numbers are expected to rise as more reports come in from rural areas.
For the Diana, Sava and Anakanjirofo regions (Northeastern coast), a red alert was issued, implying an imminent threat of further torrential rainfall and extreme flooding. Copernicus EMS is activated to provide flood extent and damage assessment.
