Hello ATS, with all the talk of the earthquake that struck China today, this seems to be overlooked (although I could be wrong) Here's a snippet from Yahoo :
"CALCUTTA, India – A cyclone packing winds of more than 100 mph (160 kph) demolished ten of thousands of mud huts in northeastern India, killing at least 85 people, officials said Wednesday.
The cyclone struck Tuesday night in northeastern parts of West Bengal and Bihar states, uprooting trees and snapping telephone and electricity lines, West Bengal Civil Defense Minister Srikumar Mukherjee said. Hundreds of people were injured.
Television footage showed uprooted trees lying across shanties and sheets of corrugated metal ripped from the roofs of homes. Small children sat outside their damaged huts as parents tried to salvage their belongings from inside."
I don't know if this is unusual or not for the area, but I hope there are no more casualties from this.
