Authorities in Mauritius are assessing the damage after Cyclone Belal brought torrential rain and flooding to the Indian Ocean island nation.
The country’s meteorological service said the storm was now moving away eastwards, but warned that “other environmental risks” still existed.
Reports gathered that about one hundred vehicles were damaged and abandoned by their owners as a result of floods that hit the capital Port Louis on Monday.
Mauritius upgraded the cyclone warning to the maximum level for a while, but said the worst danger had now passed.
However, authorities said they were carrying out a full assessment of the main roads and critical infrastructure.
