Cyclone Phailin aftermath

As the powerful storm loses strength, it moves inland into India at a much slower pace, causing heavy rain.

    Cyclone Phailin swept through India's Bay of Bengal late on Saturday, causing widespread destruction of crops and infrastructure. As the powerful storm lost strength, it moved inland at the speed of more than 100km per hour, causing heavy rain.
