Two dead as ‘Cyclone Fani’ batters eastern India


Two people died today after Cyclone Fani slammed into eastern India, officials said, as the storm sent coconut trees flying, blew away food stands and cut off power and water.

One man died of a heart attack in one of several thousand shelters that have been set up.

“Another person went out in the storm despite our warnings and died because a tree fell on him,” Odisha special relief commissioner said.
