The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Mozambique has collaborated with the government to assist in the evacuation of residents affected by the heavy rains.
Mozambican authorities say they have evacuated about 3 000 families affected by floods to higher ground, since yesterday.
UNDP's humanitarian coordinating officer in Mozambique, Casimiro Sande, says the flooding is caused by the high rain fall recorded in South Africa and other countries as Mozambique is in a downstream.
At least 40 people have been killed since the start of the rains.
