Alex Tau Massive Cyclone Threatens Eastern India

In the east side of India there was a massive cyclone happening and close to half a million evacuated their homes because of the danger that they would die. They have named the cyclone Phailin for some reason.

It was their strongest cyclone to hit India and has washed away tens of thousands of mud and roof huts and was sent to seawater by the time the cyclone was over.

The Indian Ocean is considered called the cyclone hot spot. Some of the most deadliest storms in history have come through the bay of Bangal. Including a 1999 cyclone that killed more than 10,000 citizens.
