Cyclone Batsirai nears Madagascar, presents 'very serious threat'



 Cyclone Batsirai was expected to reach eastern Madagascar on Saturday, posing a "very serious threat" to millions with powerful winds and torrential rains set to batter the large Indian Ocean island.


*Tropical Cyclone Batsirai is expected to strike regions on the eastern coast of Madagascar Saturday, only weeks after tropical storm Ana wreaked havoc in the country, warned the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) in a press release Friday. 

It is predicted that about 4.4 million people are at risk across 14 districts, with about 595,000 expected to be directly affected and more than 150,000 likely to be displaced.
