Cyclone Mahasen buffets Bangladesh coast, 5 dead

Published: 05.16.13, 11:06 / Israel News

Cyclone Mahasen buffeted Bangladesh's low-lying coast on Thursday, bearing down on the ports of Chittagong and Cox's Bazar, as tens of thousands of people huddled in shelters from a storm the United Nations says threatens 4.1 million people. Winds of up to 100 kph (60 mph) lashed the coast and whipped up waves, with an expected 2.1 metres (seven foot) storm surge.


Media reports said five people were killed in the cyclone. Storms have in the past killed many people in Banladesh, and the country has more than 1,400 cyclone-proof buildings. (Reuters)
