India Cyclone

Tropical Cyclone Phailin has made landfall in northeastern India, where a catastrophe threatens to unfold and deaths are already being reported. The approach of Phailin, among the most powerful historical cyclones in the region, has led to the evacuation of about 500,000 people, according to the Australian ABC News website. Destructive winds well over 160 kph (100 mph) and flooding rain of at least 200 mm (8 inches) likely targeted a substantial area spanning the site of the cyclone’s landfall. A crippling storm surge of 4-6 meters (14-20 feet) may have swamped the coast near the point of landfall. The India Meteorological Department confirmed that Phailin made landfall in Gopalpur Saturday evening with winds over 200 kph (125 mph).
