Cyclone Thane in TamilNadu Updates

Cyclone Thane kills 33 in southern India

Cyclone Thane
Cyclone Thane, with a wind speed of 140 kilometers (85 miles) per hour, has lashed the coastal districts of southern India, killing at least 33 people.

The cyclone ripped through the coast between Cuddalore city in Tamil Nadu state and the union territory of Pondicherry on Friday, according to India's National Disaster Management Authority.

Officials say the deaths have been mostly due to building collapses and electrocution caused by heavy rainfall and strong winds, which have uprooted trees and power lines.

Cuddalore is the worst-hit region, with an estimated 5,000 fishermen's homes damaged.

The bad weather has also affected trains and flights in the region.

The cyclones that form frequently over the Bay of Bengal bring widespread destruction and flooding to India's southern and eastern coasts.
