STATEMENT BY ROBERT PALLADINO, DEPUTY SPOKESPERSON

March 19, 2019

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Malawi, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe who have been affected by Cyclone Idai in Southern Africa.  The United States is mobilizing to provide support to our partners in Malawi, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe to assist with the relief efforts.  Our embassies in each of these countries stand ready to provide consular assistance to any U.S. citizens who may have been affected. We offer our sympathies to those who were injured or who have lost loved ones.
