By Chris Arsenault ROME (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Heavy floods in southern Malawi have killed at least 79 people, forced more than 170,000 from their homes and cost about 160,000 people their livelihoods, a UN agency said on Wednesday. A state of emergency has been declared in 15 of Malawi’s 28 districts, and 63,000 hectares of land are under water, the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) reported. In one district alone, 153 people are still missing, the FAO said, and the death toll is expected to rise. "Displaced people are either in camps or hosted by relatives," Florence Rolle, a senior FAO official in Malawi told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.
