Earth Matters: Full effect of Mozambique floods slowly emerges
(CNN) -- Weeks after the dramatic helicopter rescues and the flight to refugee camps, the long-term effects of the devastating floods in Mozambique are being tallied.
In addition to the human devastation, highways, bridges and utilities have been heavily damaged by the intense flooding. To make matters worse, many fear land mines left over from the recent civil war may have shifted with the flood waters.

CNN Reporter Craig Duff has the full story on efforts to cope in the wake of the worst flooding in Mozambique's history.
