While water can be enticingly beauteous, it can also be awfully treacherous. There has been a shady history of extreme weather events around the world. One of the deadliest water tragedies that happened in 50 years in Mozambique occurred on February 29, 2000. 

A series of cyclones, tropical storms, and deadly flood waves (measuring up to 16 feet) left thousands of flood victims stranded in Mozambique.

The calamitous flooding was initiated by a heavy downpour that lasted for five weeks. The natural disaster killed approximately 800 people and left thousands of people homeless without enough food and proper sanitization.
