Some passengers said, though, that they were unaware of the cancellations until they arrived at the airport attempting to leave.
A group of people who fled their homes were "marooned" on top of a mountain waiting to be rescued, but strong winds were hampering helicopter flights, the ministry said.

As the cyclone approached, the Red Cross sent out more than 200 volunteers to areas most likely to be affected. Roads were flooded and the airport was shut down.
Authorities were forced to close Beira global airport after the air traffic control tower, the navigation systems and the runways were damaged by the storm.
"The runway is full of obstacles and parked aircraft are damaged".
