On April 2, 2000, Cyclone Hudah made landfall at Antalaha, Madagascar. It had formed eleven days prior near Christmas Island and had traveled nearly the width of the Southern Indian Ocean passing south of Diego Garcia. As it approached Madagascar it began to intensify, and its winds reached 145 mph (235 km/hr) at landfall. It weakened while passing over the island, but regained some strength over the Mozambique Channel. It made a second landfall on April 8th at Pebane, Mozambique with 10-minute winds estimated at 100 mph (160 km/hr). Its rains brought heavy flooding to the area already ravaged by a prior cyclone. The total death count for the storm exceeded 100.
