People evacuate their homes after floods hit South Africa.

South Africa before the flood hit.
Before the floods that South Africa experienced, South Africa was a semi arid, subtropical climate. In the place that the flood mostly affected, Mozambique, they speak Portuguese and Makhuwa, Sena, and Swahili. They are one the most underdeveloped and poorest countries in the world. The Mozambique people had a war, called the Mozambican Civil War, that lasted from 1977 to 1992. Even though the war happened a while ago the people are still living in poverty and have low education levels and poor health-care. The people washed their clothes and cars in rivers. They live in small shacks and tents and a lot of their jobs involve tourism.
