Authorities in Madagascar say six people have been killed in a cyclone.
The government says Cyclone Ava also displaced more than 13,000 people on the Indian Ocean island over the weekend.
A government bulletin on Monday says the danger has passed and all cyclone alerts have been lifted.
The island nation was hit hard by a cyclone in March that left at least 50 people dead and damaged the Sava region in the northeast, which produces about half of the world’s vanilla.
